We are delighted to report our 2016 GCSE results which show clear evidence of the value that we are adding to the educational outcomes of our students and improvements across all measures.
Our Progress 8 score of 0.52 is an outstanding achievement. This demonstrates that on average students leaving Year 11 from Brakenhale achieved over half a grade higher than what was expected for a student of similar ability nationally. This is approximately half a grade higher than the 2015 results.
Our Attainment 8 score was 4.84 which equates to a C grade meaning that on average across all subjects our students achieved the national benchmark of a C. This is a whole grade higher than the 2015 results.
We have had further success with our 5 A*-C including English and Maths which has increased to 53% and as in line with last year we expect this figure to increase further subject to a number of appeals. We believe that this figure tied in with our Progress and Attainment 8 figures fully demonstrate the impact of our high expectations and challenge agenda.
Furthermore our GCSE results along with our A Level results show clearly the rapid progress that Brakenhale is making. We would like to congratulate all our students on their well-deserved success and thank the teaching staff and of course the parents who have guided and supported them.
Progress and Attainment 8 are a new government reporting tool and the link below has further information about this.
