Results and Pupil Premium

Exam results – ensuring our students achieve their full potential.

As an academy, we work hard to ensure that our students achieve grades that reflect their potential. In 2017 our students excelled, achieving outstanding results, despite a challenging and evolving national picture.

The table below illustrates our Progress 8 scores for 2017 and 2016. Progress 8 measures the performance of our students compared to the national progress of students with the same starting points across 8 subjects, as prescribed by the government. As you can see, in 2017 our students made two thirds of a grade more progress than their national counterparts with the same starting point. This has put us in approximately the top 5% of schools nationally.

Progress 8: English 0.26 0.25 -0.03

Progress 8: EBacc 0.38 0.33 -0.03
