New performance measures for GCSEs are in place this year, which means a change to the way exam results are reported.

The new accountability measure Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. It will give an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the school make positive or negative progress in relationship to national standards 

The progress 8 score is calculated by the DFE and is now available for parents. As a school, we are extremely proud of our results and our positive progress 8 score of 0.02; a score that is in line with the national average.

To read a full explanation of the way Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent schools have been scored, please see The Sentinel link below which puts these measures in full context for prospective parents:
