Note from the government website
Performance measures based on qualification results from 2022/23 cannot be directly compared to measures from 2021/22. This is because a different grading approach was used in 2021/22, to take account of the impact of the pandemic.
In 2022/23 there was a return to pre-pandemic standards for GCSEs, AS and A levels, with protection built into the grading process to recognise the disruption that students have faced. For VTQs that are taken alongside, or instead, of GCSEs and A levels, there was also a return to pre-pandemic standards in 2022/23. For many students, results from 2021/22 adapted assessments were used towards qualifications in 2022/23.
More information on qualification grading approaches for this year and last year can be found at Exam results 2023: 10 things to know about GCSE, AS and A level grades - The Ofqual blog and Vocational and technical qualifications grading in 2023 - The Ofqual blog
There are also other factors affecting 2022/23 performance measures, following the COVID-19 pandemic, which should be considered when using secondary performance measures. These include:
- 2022/23 performance measures may include some qualification grades that were awarded in 2021/22 using a different grading approach.
- A8* for this school: 51.2
- P8** for this school: 0.28
- Strong Pass (9 - 5) in English & Mathematics: 51%
- Standard Pass (9 - 4) in English and Mathematics: 79%
- Entering English Baccalaureate (EBacc***): 52%
- EBacc average point score (APS): 4.61
- % of students staying in education or employment after 16: 96%
*Attainment 8 (A8) is a measure of public examination performance across eight subjects. This includes English, Mathematics, Sciences, Humanities, Languages and other optional subjects. In 2022, this excludes the impact of English Literature which was sat in 2021 by this cohort and therefore discounted.
**Progress 8 (P8) is the progress a pupil makes from the end of KS2 - KS4, compared with pupils nationally with similar attainment. A positive score means a pupil has made more progress than other pupils with similar starting points.
***EBacc is a measure of the percentage of students who achieved a Grade 4 in English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities (Geography or History) and Languages.
