Examination Results 2018
Performance information - What has changed for 2018? The way that schools’ performance measures are judged has changed in each of the last two years. New GCSEs are now taken by students in the vast majority of subjects. These qualifications are graded from 9 to 1, rather than from A* to G as previously, and therefore cannot be compared with previous years’ results.
A key performance measure for schools is the proportion of students who attain a ‘Good Pass’ in both English and mathematics (grade 4 or above). A ‘Strong Pass’ is considered to be grade 5 and above. For English, it is the student’s best grade of English Language and Literature which is included.
|English & Mathematics||English||Mathematics|
|% Grade 4+||39||51||47|
|% Grade 5+||24||34||29|
Regarding our most able students, 10% gained Grade 7 and above in English and 13% in mathematics.
Progress Measures Progress 8 is a calculation based on the achievement across 8 subjects for each student and based on whether they met, exceeded or were below their expected performance in each subject. A figure is then calculated for the whole school. -0.5 is considered to be the ‘floor standard’, or the minimum expected standard set by the government. Lancaster’s provisional Progress 8 figure for 2018 is -0.83.
