KS4 - Progress 8 Score
Progress 8 tells us how well pupils at this school have progressed between the end of primary school (key stage 2) and the end of secondary school (key stage 4), compared to pupils in other schools who got similar results at the end of primary school. This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.


KS4 - Attainment 8 Score

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.


KS4 - Percentage of pupils who’ve achieved grade C or above in English and Mathematics

Pupils achieving a grade C or better in English and maths GCSEs.


KS4 - Percentage of pupils who’ve achieved the English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. A pupil is considered to have ‘achieved’ the English Baccalaureate if they got a grade C or better in the following subjects: English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography.


KS4 - Pupil destinations - pupils staying in education or going into employment

This measures the number of pupils who either stayed in education or went into employment after year 11 (after key stage 4). The data published in January 2017 is for pupils who finished year 11 in 2014, which is the most recent data currently available.


Post 16 - English & Maths

These scores show how much progress students at this school or college made in English and maths qualifications such as GCSE re-takes, between the end of key stage 4 and the end of the 16 to 18 phase of education. A positive score means that, on average, students got higher grades at 16 to 18 than at key stage 4. A negative score means that, on average, students got lower grades than at key stage 4. Students are included in these measures if they did not achieve a grade C or higher in their GCSE or equivalent by the end of key stage 4 in that subject.


Post 16 - Progress - A Levels

These figures tell you how much progress students who studied A levels at this school or college made between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A level studies, compared to similar students across England.
The scores are calculated by comparing the A-level results of students at this school or college with the A level results of students in schools and colleges across England who started with similar results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 4.
A score above zero means students made more progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.
A score below zero means students made less progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.
A negative progress score does not mean students made no progress, or the school or college has failed, rather it means students in this school or college made less progress than other students across England with similar results at the end of key stage 4.
The majority of schools and colleges have progress scores between -2 and +2.
These scores are also known as ‘value added’ scores.
Confidence intervals – it is difficult to say with certainty how much the progress scores are down to the school or college (which may have scored higher with a different group of students) and how much is down to the students (for example some may have performed well at any school or college). The confidence intervals reflect this uncertainty. If the confidence intervals for two schools or colleges overlap, then we can’t say for certain that the two progress scores for these schools or colleges are significantly different.



Post 16 - Progress - Academic Qualifications(all academic, including A Levels)

Academic qualifications include A levels but also other ‘level 3’ academic qualifications such as International Baccalaureates and Pre-U. These figures are based on students who were entered for at least one academic qualification that is at least the size of an AS level.



Post 16 - Progress - Applied General Qualifications(broad vocational qualifications)

Applied general are qualifications that provide broad study of a vocational area. They are designed to lead to higher education and they include areas such as performing arts, business and health and social care. These figures are based on students who were entered for at least one applied general qualification that is at least the size of an AS level.



Post 16 - Average Result - A Levels

These figures tell you the average grade and average points that students achieved per A level entry. We give a points value to all qualifications so you can compare qualifications of a different level, size and grading system. We base the number of points on the challenge and size of a qualification.


Post 16 - Average Result - Academic Qualifications(all academic, including A Levels)

These figures tell you the average grade and average points that students achieved in their academic qualifications. We give a points value to all qualifications so you can compare qualifications of a different level, size and grading system. We base the number of points on the challenge and size of a qualification.


Post 16 - Average Result - Applied General Qualifications(broad vocational qualifications)

These figures tell you the average grade and average points that students achieved in their applied general qualifications. We give a points value to all qualifications so you can compare qualifications of a different level, size and grading system. We base the number of points on the challenge and size of a qualification.


Post 16 - Students Destinations(education or employment after 16 to 18)

Students finishing 16 to 18 study who either stayed in education or went into employment from October to March the following year. The data published in January 2017 is for students who finished 16 to 18 study in 2014, which is the most recent data currently available.
