Achievement at The Weald in top 5% in England

Students at The Weald achieve extremely well. The Government’s new national achievement measure is called “Progress 8”.  Scores for students at The Weald are in the top 5% in the country with a score of +0.72. This means that students score on average +0.72 GCSE grades higher for each GCSE they take in comparison with students from similar starting points nationally. With over 3000 secondary schools in the England, this puts The Weald in the top 150 schools in the country. Progress 8 tells us how well pupils have progressed between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school (Year 11), compared to pupils in other schools who got similar results at the end of primary school. This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional qualifications.

Achievement post 16 (Year 13) is equally high. The Weald was named as one of the top 250 performing schools in The Times newspaper as a result of last year’s results. Our value added or progress scores post 16 put the performance of students from The Weald in the top 10% nationally.
