We are pleased to be able to see a continued improvement in GCSE outcomes at St Andrew's in the 2019 results.
Progress 8 is a type of value added measure which compares pupils’ key stage 4 results to those of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment from their KS2 results. The significant improvement in Progress 8 at St Andrew's is excellent: in 2019 our Progress 8 was -0.35, up from -0.45 in 2018 which was significantly improved from -0.66 in 2017. This clearly demonstrates the rapid upward journey the school is on.
Attainment 8 is the total points allocated according to grades the pupil achieves across 8 qualifications including mathematics (double weighted) and English (double weighted), 3 further qualifications that count in the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) measure and 3 further qualifications subjects are added together to give the Attainment 8 score.
