The best and worst performing high schools in around Preston, according to the latest GCSE Progress 8 scores
Progress 8 figures, which give schools a positive or negative score, measure the progress that pupils make from Key Stage 2 in primary school right up to the end of their GCSEs in Key Stage 4.
It was introduced in 2016 as a fairer way to assess a school’s academic performance, rather than simply looking at raw grades and outcomes.
A score above zero means pupils have achieved better results on average at their school than at other schools across England that got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.
This means they have achieved an ‘above average’ score.
The figures show that five schools received an ‘above average’ score.
15 schools recorded no Progress 8 scores.
These were Abrar Academy, Cedar Lodge School, The Limes School, Spen Brook School, Sir Tom Finney Community High School, Pioneer TEC, Trax Academy, The Coppice School, Bridgeway School, Progress School, Cambian Red Rose School, Roselyn House School, Aurora Brambles School, Meadow View Learning Centre and Waterloo Lodge.
