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 103.6.

In 2017, 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
Reading 74%  71%
Mathematics 76% 75%
EGPS (English, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) 83% 77%

All 3 areas

78% 74%

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.

24% of pupils achieved a higher standard in Reading and 6% in Maths. In Writing, 17% 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 2017, the progress scores were as follows:

  • Reading Progress Score = -0.1 (-2.0 to 1.8)
  • Writing Progress Score = -1.7 (-3.5 to 0.1)
  • Maths Progress Score = -1.4 (-3.1 to 0.3)

Year 11 GCSE

In 2017, the School achieved higher than the national average in the key government measures at GCSE:

  • Percentage of pupils who achieved a good pass (grade 4 or above) in English and Maths = 75%.
  • Percentage of pupils who achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and Maths = 43%. The national average is 39.1%
  • Percentage of Year 11 pupils who achieved the English Baccalaureate at grade 5 or above = 24%. The national average is 19.5%.
  • Progress 8 score = +0.21 (confidence interval of -0.03 to +0.44). The national average is 0.00.
  • Attainment 8 score = 48.2. The national average is 44.2.

After completion of GCSEs, 90% of Year 11 pupils continued in education  and 3% entered employment.

Sixth Form

In 2017, Year 13 students who sat their exams achieved a higher percentage of A*-B at A Level than would have been predicted for them based on their prior attainment at GCSE:

  % A Levels graded A*-B 
Expected Results   34%
Actual Results  48%


Our students have also made good progress in other areas:


Progress Scores                    

 Average Grade            % of students completing programme
 Academic Qualifications     +0.12 (-0.04 to 0.29)  C  95.7%
 Vocational Qualifications  +0.28 (-0.17 to 0.74)  Distinction+  100%


Of the Upper Sixth students who sat A Levels in Summer 2017 and whose post-18 destinations are known, 90% went to university, with many securing places at Russell Group universities. 4% of students are taking a gap year, and 6% have gone into employment or training.
