GCSE Examination Results

The Government has announced that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020 and 2021.

GCSE Results 2022

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.

The government has changed the way that it judges the performance of schools. It no longer uses the percentage of students who have gained five A*-C grades but four other measures.

1. A “Progress 8” score. This shows how well students have progressed in the school since they came in from their primary school, compared to pupils in other schools who got similar results at the end of primary school. A positive score is good and a zero score is the average for schools nationally. For example, a score of 0.5 would mean that, taken together, each student in each subject did half a grade better than the average of all schools.

The Elton High School Progress 8 score 2022:  -0.22

2. An “Attainment 8” score.This measures how well students perform across their best 8 subjects, including English, mathematics, 3 English Baccalaureate subjects and 3 other subjects. English Baccalaureate subjects include sciences, humanities and languages.

The Elton High School Attainment 8 score 2022: 48.65

3. The percentage of pupils who achieved grade 5 and above in both English and mathematics.

The Elton High School percentage: 48.3%

The percentage of pupils who achieved grade 4 and above in both English and mathematics.

   The Elton High School percentage: 72.1%

4. In 2018, a new measure called the EBACC Average Point Score was introduced. This new measure gives an average point score across the 5 pillars of the EBACC, for all students in the school.

The Elton High School EBACC APS 2022: 4.18.

Staying in Education or entering employment

This shows the number of pupils who either stayed in education or went into employment after finishing key stage 4 (after year 11, usually aged 16). This is for pupils who finished year 11 in 2020, which is the most recent data currently available. This figure covers any sustained education or employment destination.
