Secondary (key stage 4) performance in 2016

Show more infoClick to expand

These figures tell you about performance of pupils at this school at key stage 4(opens a popup) (school years 10 and 11), which are the last two years of the secondary phase of education. These figures were published in January 2017 and revised in April 2017, and relate to pupils who completed key stage 4 in the summer of 2016.


Progress 8 score

HideShow more info Click to expand

This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2(opens a popup) and the end of key stage 4(opens a popup), 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.

The average Progress 8 score for 'mainstream' schools in England is 0. Mainstream schools are schools that aren’t special schools or 'alternative provision settings' (for example pupil referral units). Most schools score between -1 and +1. If a school scores +1 and above, it shows that pupils made exceptionally good progress. If the score is below -0.5, the school may come under increased scrutiny and receive additional support.

A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2.

A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2.

A negative progress score does not mean pupils made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 2.

Confidence intervals(opens a popup) - It is difficult to say with certainty how much of the Progress 8 score is down to the school (which may have scored higher with a different group of pupils) and how much is down to the pupils (for example some may have performed well at any school). The confidence interval reflects this uncertainty. If the confidence intervals for two schools overlap, then we can't say for certain that the two Progress 8 scores for these schools are significantly different.

How we calculate the Progress 8 descriptions ('bandings'):

Progress 8 description School is given the description if...
Well above national average Score is 0.5 or higher, and lower confidence interval is higher than 0.
Above national average Score is higher than 0 but lower than 0.5, and lower confidence interval is higher than 0.
Average Lower confidence interval is 0 or lower, and the upper confidence interval is 0 or higher.
Below national average Score is -0.5 or higher but less than 0, and upper confidence interval is lower than 0.
Well below national average Score is lower than -0.5 and upper confidence interval is lower than 0.

Performance of disadvantaged pupils Click to expand

'Disadvantaged pupils' are those who attract pupil premium funding, meaning pupils claiming free school meals at any point in the last six years and pupils in care, or who left care through adoption or another formal route. Evidence shows that the progress and achievement of disadvantaged pupils is normally lower than that of 'other' pupils.

Performance by prior attainment Click to expand

'Prior attainment' is the attainment level of a pupil at the end of key stage 2 (end of the primary phase of education). This data indicates how well a school supports all of its pupils to meet their potential. Middle attainers were pupils who achieved level 4. High attainers were pupils who did better than level 4, while low attainers were below level 4. Pupils without key stage 2 results have been excluded.

Acronyms & abbreviations

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

Further guidance

Figures in the performance tables will only include those qualifications documented on the list of approved qualifications for the performance tables - eg they will not include unapproved international GCSEs. Schools that offer unapproved qualifications may find that their performance against the headline measure of 'Pupils achieving Grade C or better in English and maths GCSEs' is recorded as 0%.

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.

Measures published on the 19 January 2017 reflect changes notified to the department before early November 2016. Further requests for change were assessed during the annual errata period, and the data was updated in April 2017 to reflect requests that were approved.

Absence in 2015 to 2016

Absence data covers pupils aged 5 to 15 on 31 August 2015, and is for the full 2015 to 2016 academic year including the second half of the summer term. See the absence statistics guide for more information on how we collect and report absence figures.

About this data Click to expand

This information comes from the school workforce census in November 2014 that covered all state funded schools in England.

Data was collected from local authority maintained nursery schools, primary schools, secondary schools, special schools as well as city technology colleges, academies (including free schools) and pupil referral units.

The census covered all teachers with a contract of 28 days or more, as well as all teaching assistants and other support staff members employed directly by the school. It did not collect data from direct grant nurseries, independent schools, non-maintained special and general hospital schools.

About this data Click to expand

The finance section allows you to compare the outcomes schools achieve with how they spend their money, and so ask questions about how they could use their resources more efficiently and effectively.

Where possible, figures are shown as income or spend per pupil at the school to make comparisons easier. Some schools, such as academies and free schools, publish their financial information in different ways. You can find information about the income and spending of an academy or a free school in the annual report and financial statements provided.

To compare school incomes and spending fairly, you should consider the percentage of children eligible for free school meals (FSM), the type of school and whether a school is in London or not.

Local authority and England averages
Please note the England and local authority finance figures provided are all middle (median) values, the most appropriate type of average for this data. Using medians means that the figures for each aspect of income or spending in a region may not add up to give the total spending value (which itself is a median value).
