GCSE league tables: How did your North Devon secondary school perform?

GCSE league tables: How did your North Devon secondary school perform?

Jim Skinner, chief executive of the Grammar School Heads' Association, said: "It's reassuring to see, as we would expect, that selective schools are dominating the Attainment 8 measure, but it is perhaps more significant that they are disproportionately well represented in Progress 8".

The trust was the best in the country for its Progress 8 score for disadvantaged pupils (0.51).

Secondary schools are deemed below standard if pupils averagely score half a grade less across eight GCSEs than expected.

The highest-ranked comprehensive schools are Campion School and Kenilworth School, which both had a Progress 8 score of 0.54.

Toot Hill School was the best-performing school in the Advertiser area based on English and maths GCSE results, with 64% of its pupils achieving at least a grade 5 in both subjects.

The average for Nottinghamshire was 0.04 and for state-funded schools in England it was -0.03.

It is listed as a comprehensive school in the Government's data, although according to its website, the school does select 65 children out of 200 each year based on aptitude and abilities determined by the Governor's Entrance Examination.

Nick Bardsley, Shropshire Council's Cabinet member for children's services and education, said: "These results are a testament to the hard work and effort that students have put into their studies and we congratulate them on their achievements. We are delighted that the hard work and expertise of our primary school teachers and leaders are officially recognised as so outstanding".

Progress 8 is a new secondary accountability measure aimed at measuring the progress of pupils across a selected set of 8 subjects.

At Tuxford Academy, 55% of pupils achieved that standard, and at the Minster School it was 54%.

The national average is 44.6.

North Yorkshire also has a higher proportion of pupils who attend secondary schools which are good or outstanding, with 91 per cent attending a good or outstanding school - compared to 82.6 per cent nationally.

Grades now range from a top 9 - equivalent to the old A* - down to 1. Progress 8 scores of all Year 11 pupils are added together and divided by the number of pupils in the school.
