BEST IN COUNTY - PROGRESS 8 SCORE CONFIRMED

A few weeks ago I wrote in the School Bulletin about our provisional Progress 8 score. I explained that it was impressively high and that I anticipated that we would feature prominently when School Performance Tables were published. These appeared on Wednesday 17 October 2018 and I can confirm that progress made by our students was the best of all the schools in Lincolnshire. Only about 14% of all schools achieve a Progress 8 score which is regarded to be ‘well above average’. The national average is -0.02 and for Lincolnshire the average is -0.15.

Progress 8 is the Government’s measure of how much progress students at this School made between the end of Key Stage 2 (i.e. the end of their Primary education) and the end of Key Stage 4 (i.e. their GCSE results), compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2. Calculation of the measure is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, Maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

The Department for Education School Performance tables for our school can be found here.
