Progress 8

All secondary schools are judged on the amount of progress that their students make. This is known as the 'Progress 8' measure. This is the main headline measure by which schools are ranked and is published in the secondary school performance tables.

What does Progress 8 measure?

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in Year 6 and their results in year 11 (GCSEs). It is a 'value-added' measure, meaning students' results are compared to the achievements of other students across the country with similar Year 6 results.

A school's Progress 8 score is an average of all students' individual scores. It shows whether, as a group, students in the school made above or below average progress compared to similar students in other schools.

A value of 0 is the national average and therefore a figure above 0 is above average. A negative value would be below the national average.

Our Progress 8 score is +0.21. This means the progress made by students at our school was above average.

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 is a measure of a student’s average grade across a set suite of eight subjects. Our average Attainment 8 grade is 48.3, this is above the National score of 46.7.

Ebacc

We operated a free option choice for the Year 11 students that completed their GCSEs in 2018. As a consequence, 16% of students studied courses that would give them the complete suite of Ebacc subjects.

The Ebacc headline measure is an average score of performance of all students in the Ebacc subjects, even if they did not study the full suite of those subjects.

Our score of 4.04 is in line with the national score of 4.07.

Key Stage 5 results

We had another fantastic set of results this year. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our students and staff. Our students can be proud that they have achieved the best progress scores since the Sixth Form opened, demonstrating our commitment to excellence for all students.

Students are progressing onto a wide range of destinations including university and higher apprenticeships.

We are delighted that the A Level and BTEC results continue to increase and are excellent again this year as our Sixth Form flourishes. We wish all of our students well as they move on to University or new careers.

Key Stage 5 progress

The Key Stage 5 progress measure tells you how much progress students who studied A levels made between the end of Key Stage 4 (Year 11) and the end of their A level studies (Year 13), compared to similar students across England.

The scores are calculated by comparing the A Level results of students at our Sixth Form with the A Level results of students in schools and colleges across England who started with similar results at the end of  Key Stage 4.

A value of 0 is the national average and therefore a figure above 0 is above average whereas a negative value would be below the national average.

Our progress score is 0.2. This is the best progress of all sixth forms and colleges in Dudley and above average nationally.
