Progress 8 & Attainment 8 Guide.

2016 Results
What a wonderful morning it has been celebrating success with the class of 2016. They smashed it! 54% of our pupils achieved a good GCSE (C or above) in both English and Maths – that’s 16% improvement on last year!

There have been lots of massive improvements – 52% of pupils achieved 5A*-C including English and Maths – a huge improvement on last year.

Even more pleasing is the number of A* and A grades – in fact the top three pupils in the school got 26 A*/A grades between them!

We are so proud of every pupil, parent and staff who have pulled together to achieve these brilliant results.

It really does prove that a little bit of hard work and determination really does make a difference!

I wish the Class of 2016 happiness, health and success in future endeavours – don’t forget us because we will always remember you. Once a Stretfordian, always a Stretfordian!

GCSE Headlines for 2016:

The DfE have introduced new methods for schools to measure their pupils’ outcomes. These are:

  • The Basics % – This is the number of pupils who achieved a grade C or above in both English & Maths.
  • Attainment 8 – This is the average score for all pupils’ results. This can be compared against the Estimated Attainment 8 score which is basically the expected average score pupils should get.
  • Progress 8 – This shows if pupils’ results are better or worse than expected. Progress 8 figures are provisional at this point as all schools must wait for the official calculation which should be released in October. Figures below are based on previous year’s model.
  • A figure below 0 means pupil outcomes are below expected.
  • A figure above 0 means pupil outcomes are above expected.
  • % Entered for and passing Ebacc. This means the % of pupils who have been entered for and % pupils who have achieved a grade C + in English, Maths, Science, a humanities subject and a language.

Below you will find a table showing how we have performed as a school using these new measures against the previous 3 years
