The English Baccalaureate was introduced by the Government to recognise achievement in a range of academic and challenging subjects. It is awarded to students who achieve A*-C in each of English, Maths, two Sciences, a modern foreign language and History or Geography. Nationally less than a quarter of students achieve the English Baccalaureate.
Progress 8 is a new measure, which aims to capture the progress a student makes from the end of primary education to the end of secondary education. It is a calculation based on the performance of students across 8 qualifications.
A positive Progress 8 score means that the school is adding more than expected value to the performance of students. The greater the Progress 8 score the greater the progress made by the students compared to the average of students with similar prior attainment.

Thank you to all staff, students, parents and carers for all their hard work.
