Progress 8

All secondary schools are judged on the amount of progress that their students make. This is known as the ‘Progress 8’ measure. This is the main headline measure by which schools are ranked and is 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 pupils 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 provisional Progress 8 score is +0.1

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 is a measure of a student’s average grade across a set suite of eight subjects.
Our average ‘Attainment 8’ grade is 4.7, this is above the National score of 4.45.

Ebacc

Windsor operated a free option choice for the year 11 students that completed their GCSEs in 2018. As a consequence 34% of students studied courses that would give them the complete suite of Ebacc subjects.

The Ebacc headline measure is an average score of performance of all students in the Ebacc subjects, even if they did not study the full suite of those subjects.

Our score of 4.12 is above the national score of 3.85.

 

Key Stage 5 Results

We have another fantastic set of results this year, testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our students and staff. Our students can be proud that they have achieved the best progress scores since the sixth form opened, demonstrating our commitment to excellence for all students.

Students are progressing onto a wide-range of destinations including university and higher apprenticeships.

We are overjoyed that the A Level and BTEC results continue our upward trend and are excellent again this year as our sixth form flourishes. We wish all of our students well as they move on to University or new careers.
