'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 (opens in a new window)

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.

Attainment 8

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

Position within the group

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

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 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

Progress 8 measures a pupil's academic progress during Key Stages 3 and 4. 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.
