* Progress 8 is a new performance indicator introduced by the government this year and the one that they consider to be the most important. It measures students’ progress across 8 subjects from age 11 to 16 and a positive score means that students in that school have made, on average, more progress than the national average. Therefore our score of 0.07 is a positive outcome for the school.

** The first figure gives the percentage using English Language only which allows a direct comparison with 2014-15. The figure in brackets gives the percentage that the government will publish this year ie the better of English Language and English Literature.

The number of students in Year 11: 170
