Similar schools for Soham Village College

'Similar schools' means schools across England whose key stage 4 pupils had similar achievement at the end of key stage 2(opens a popup).

more info Click to expand

'Similar schools' means state-funded mainstream secondary schools across England whose key stage 4(opens a popup) pupils had similar expected achievement in year 11 based on their grades at the end of primary school (key stage 2)(opens a popup). Where possible, one or more better performing schools have been indicated within the similar schools grouping that are located within 75 miles of the school (see the key above for more information). If there is no better performing similar school based on our similar schools methodology within 75 miles of the school, a better performing school outside of the similar schools grouping has been indicated at the bottom of the page.

Some schools will not have a better performing school indicated. Please note that this does not necessarily mean that this school is the highest attaining school in the country, but that it has one of the highest Attainment 8 scores and therefore allocating a better school based on our current similar schools methodology is not possible. For further details on the methodology for similar schools for key stage 4, see School performance tables: about the data

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

Average points score at key stage 2

The average of the points score for all pupils at the end of key stage 2, based on teacher assessment for writing and test results in reading and maths.

Progress 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 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.

Confidence intervals

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.

Generally speaking, the greater the number of students, the smaller the range of the confidence interval. For smaller schools, the confidence interval tends to be larger, since fewer pupils are included, and therefore the score will be more greatly impacted by performance of individual pupils.

A school is above average if their Progress 8 score is above 0 and the whole confidence interval is above 0. Similarly, a school is below average if their Progress 8 score is below 0 and the whole confidence interval is below 0.
