Schools similar toSale High School

'Similar schools' means schools across England whose key stage 4 pupils had similar achievement at the end of key stage 2(opens a popup). These figures are based on the results of pupils who finished key stage 4 in July 2017, which is the latest data available.

The list shows the selected school compared to other state-funded mainstream schools whose key stage 4 pupils were expected to achieve similar results in year 11 based on their grades at the end of primary school (key stage 2).

Two types of similar schools in the list are highlighted with a clickable question mark:

If there is no similar school within 75 miles that is substantially better performing, a better performing school outside of the similar schools grouping may be shown at the bottom of the page. This may not be possible if the school has very high attainment. For further details, see School performance tables: about the data (opens in a new window)

Similar schools lists are normally updated each year in January, along with revised (opens a popup) results data, and again later in Spring, along with final results data.

Attainment 8 score

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed 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.

Position within the group

This is a ranking with the group of schools in the list, based on the Attainment 8 score.

Progress 8 score

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.

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.

Detailed guide to Progress 8 - for more information about how the Progress 8 score is calculated.

Schools and colleges not covering full Progress 8 period

Some schools and colleges, including university technical colleges, studio schools and further education colleges which cover key stage 4, start educating pupils from the beginning of key stage 4, partway through the 5-year period covered by Progress 8. This should be taken into account when comparing their results with those for schools which start educating their pupils from the beginning of key stage 3.
