About this data

Abbreviations Click to expand

  • LOWCOV = Low coverage: shown for the ‘value added’ measure and coverage indicator where schools have less than 50% of pupils included in calculation of the measure
  • NA = Not applicable: figures are either not available for the year in question, or the data field is not applicable to the school or college
  • NE = No entries: the school or college did not enter any pupils or students for the qualifications covered by the measure
  • NEW = New school or college
  • NP = Not published: for example, we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent special schools and non-maintained special schools
  • SP = Small percentage: the number is between 0% and 0.5%
  • SUPP = Suppressed: Where there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure at the school or college (10 in the case of pupil or student destinations measures), we avoid making these figures public to protect the privacy of those individuals.

Figures in the performance tables will only include those qualifications documented on the list of approved qualifications for the performance tables.

Guidance and supporting documentation on school performance tables:

State-funded schools (local authority maintained schools and academies) are held to account for their performance against these measures. We publish results for independent schools, but they are not accountable against these measures.

Provisional 2018 data is not available for this school or college. This is normally for one of the following reasons:

  • The school is not state funded.
  • The school changed school type (for example, converted to an academy) during the 2017 to 2018 academic year, or re-opened after the closure of the previous school on the same site (for example, it became a sponsored academy). In these cases, the 2018 data will be found on the page of the former school, because that is where pupils carried out the majority of key stage 4 opens a popup .
  • The school had no pupils who completed key stage 4 in 2018 - for example, because key stage 4 is new at this school and pupils have so far only completed the first year of their studies.

No data is available or applicable for this school or college. This is normally for one of the following reasons:

  • The school or college changed school type (for example, converted to an academy) during the 2016 to 2017 academic year, or re-opened after the closure of the previous school or college on the same site (for example, it became a sponsored academy). In these cases, the 2017 data will be found on the page of the former school or college, because that is where students carried out the majority of their 16-18 studies.
  • The school or college had no students who completed 16 to 18 studies in 2017 - for example, because 16 to 18 studies are new at this school or college and students have so far only completed the first year of their studies.

This school closed on 30/09/2016 and has now become an academy. The new school is The Meadows School.
