GCSE Grading is changing this year. This document will help you understand these changes.
Rightly, schools are now measured in terms of the progress made by their pupils from KS2 (Year 6 SATs) to KS4 (GCSEs). The new Progress 8 figure (see video above), by which all schools are now judged, is very pleasing. Shadow data tells us that this is the highest score for the last three years, at +0.04 National Average 0.00 (Attainment 8 52.9 National Avg. 48.5); this means that pupils at Henley-in-Arden School in 2016 gained grades higher than the average for all schools nationally, and their scores are also better than the average for all Warwickshire Local Authority schools (see table below). In simple terms, half of schools nationally have a negative Progress 8 (below '0') and half of schools have a positive score. We're pleased to report that our score is within the positive half of the range.
Initial calculations show that this year, pupils at Henley-in-Arden School made the best progress ever in terms of best 8 Value Added, with a value added figure of 1,008 (again, above the national figure of 1,000, shown in orange); this is the first time since Value Added figures have been calculated that this figure has been over 1,000 for Henley, continuing the rapid trend of improvement over the last three years.
Remarkably, in English, 39% and in Maths, 38% of pupils made progress that exceeds the legacy national expectation from the DfE.
In terms of overall attainment, the Capped 8 points score rose significantly to 338.06; by a wide margin, this is the highest score for many years. The Capped 8 Points score with English and Maths also rose significantly to 337.84, again being the highest score for many years.
These outcomes do not happen by accident and are a testament to the dedication and hard-work invested by the students as well as the excellent support and guidance provided by staff, governors and parents.
Congratulations to all involved on achieving our best ever progress!
