Type of school or college

  • Academy - government funded but run by an academy trust rather than a local authority.
  • College - colleges generally are focused on the 16 to 18 phase of education and provide vocational as well as academic courses. Some colleges also provide for full-time study at key stage 4.
  • Independent school - privately funded.
  • Maintained school - government funded and run by a local authority.
  • Special school - schools that specialise in educating pupils with special educational needs.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

More information on statistical confidence

Attainment 8

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.

Achieving the English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. A pupil is considered to have ‘achieved’ the English Baccalaureate if they got a grade C or better in the following subjects: English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography.

Entering for the English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. A pupil is considered to have ‘entered’ for the English Baccalaureate if they entered for qualifications in English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography.
