Attainment 8 score is 58.9

Average attainment in the 8 elements (English, Maths, 3 English Baccalaureate and 3 open), compared to the average of pupils with similar prior attainment.

Progress 8 score is 0.8

This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2 and the end of key stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2. This 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.

English Baccalaureate = 65%

(Percentage of our eligible students who entered 88%)

The English Baccalaureate 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 5 or better in English and Maths, and a grade C or better in Sciences, a language and either History or Geography.

Staying in Education or Entering Employment for at least 2 terms after key stage 4 = 96%

This shows the number of pupils who either stayed in education or went into employment after finishing key stage 4 (after year 11, usually aged 16). This figure covers any sustained education or employment destination.
