KS4 Results 2015-16
This cohort of Yr11 students had the lowest ever starting point for many years in Yr7 so our ambition was always to ensure they made above expected progress. Indeed, the DfE have removed headline attainment measures for 5 A*-C grades including En and Ma in favour of a more rounded progress measure across 8 subjects, known as Progress 8. They are also interested in Progress made specifically in Maths and English as well as a single attainment measure known as 'the Basics' or more specifically the % of students achieving at least a C grade in both English and maths. Our performance measures were (updated Jan. 17);
■ English → 71% A*-C, Progress +0.25
■ Maths → 59% A*-C, Progress +0.15
■ English and Maths combined (achieving a good pass) → 52%
■ Progress 8 Score → -0.14 (floor standard -0.5)
■ English Baccalaureate → 8 % (of 14% (of full Yr 11 cohort) entered)
■ Average Attainment 8 score → 43.40
