Almost all students gained their first choice University to study the degree courses of their choice.

KS5 Progress Explained:

The post 16 progress measure shows the relationship between students’ GCSE performance and their performance in level 3 qualifications (i.e. A levels and Level 3 BTECs).

For example a score of 0 equals expected progress, and a score of +0.5 would mean students in the sixth form on average scoring half a grade more than expected in every subject.

Our score of -0.09 for A levels is in line with expected progress nationally. Our score of +0.8 for vocational qualifications is well above expected progress nationally and means that our students gain nearly a grade higher in each subject than would be expected.

Progress 8

The DfE has recently changed how school performance is measured.

From 2016 all secondary schools will be measured on progress, using the Progress 8 measure. This will be published in the secondary school performance tables.

What does Progress 8 measure?

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in year 6 and their results in year 11. It is a ‘value-added’ measure, meaning students’ results are compared to the achievements of other students across the country with similar year 6 results.

A school’s Progress 8 score is an average of all students’ individual scores. It shows whether, as a group, students in the school made above or below average progress compared to similar students in other schools.

A value of 0 is the national average and therefore a figure above 0 is above average whereas a negative value would be below the national average.

Our Progress 8 score is +0.15 – however we will not know our actual score until the Department for Education (DfE)  publishes further information in late October 2016.

Attainment 8

Our average ‘Attainment 8’ grade is 5.15

Attainment 8 is a measure of a student’s average grade across a set suite of eight subjects.

Our score means that the average grade for all our year 11 students across all subjects was a C grade. The national figure for 2015 was 4.8 (a high D grade).

Ebacc

Windsor operated a free option choice for the year 11 students that completed their GCSEs in 2016. As a consequence 28% of students studied courses that would give them the complete suite of Ebacc subjects. Of these 58% successfully met the Ebacc performance measure. This represented 16% of all year 11 students.
