Year 6 SATs
With the introduction of the new Key Stage 2 Assessment Structure Levels have been discarded and children now receive a scaled score calculated from their raw score in each test. Children who achieve a score of 100 or above will have met the expected standard. The scaled score of 100 is roughly equivalent to an old level 4b. Our pupils achieved an average 'scaled score' in Reading and Maths of 104.
In 2016, pupils at the School achieved above national level standards in all three areas of the curriculum assessed:
|% of pupils at or above Expected Level - This School||% of pupils at or above Expected Level - National|
|EGPS (English, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling)||79%||72%|
All 3 areas
For pupils to achieve the higher standard at the end of Key Stage 2, they must have a high scaled score in Reading and high scaled score in Mathematics. For Writing, pupils must have been teacher assessed as ‘working at a greater depth’. A high scaled score refers to scores of 110 and over.
26% of pupils achieved a higher standard in Reading and 18% in Maths. In Writing, 13% of our pupils worked at a greater depth within the expected standards.
New progress measures compare pupils’ Key Stage 2 results to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.
Progress results are calculated for a school based on their specific cohort of pupils. A school's scores should be interpreted alongside their associated confidence intervals (in brackets). For 2016, the progress scores were as follows:
- Reading Progress Score = -0.7 (-2.8 to 1.4)
- Writing Progress Score = 0.0 (-2.2 to 2.2)
- Maths Progress Score = -2.0 (-3.8 to -0.2)
Year 11 GCSE
In 2016, the School achieved higher than the national average in the four key government measures at GCSE:
- Pupils achieving a grade C or above in English and Maths GCSEs = 67%. The national average is 58.7%.
- Percentage of Year 11 who achieved the English Baccalaureate = 26%. The national average is 22.8%.
- Progress 8 score = +0.1 (confidence interval of -0.1 to +0.3). The national average is 0.00.
- Attainment 8 score = 51.9. The national average is 48.2.
51% of all A Levels were awarded grades A*- B. Of the Upper Sixth students who sat A Levels in Summer 2016, 84% went to university, with many securing places at Russell Group universities. 8% of students are taking a gap year, and 8% have gone into employment or training.
