Whilst the school’s Progress 8 figure of -0.24 has been categorised by the Department for Education as ‘below average’ and represents a fall from the 2018 figure of -0.09, the context below is helpful when considering this figure: –
• Students’ scores in English qualifications are double weighted when the Progress 8 calculation is made; following concerns raised by our staff who have an outstanding track record of securing superb results in English for our students; the school has pursued every avenue possible to ensure that the marking is accurate, this has resulted in a significant number of grades being raised.
• 46% of students have achieved a grade 5 or above in both English and Maths GCSEs, this is above both the local and national averages.
• In attainment terms i.e. the actual qualifications the students require as “currency” when they walk out of the door; the school’s Attainment 8 score of 48.7; this is above both the local and the national average.
• An above average number of Hurworth students stay in education or enter employment when they leave us demonstrating that they have been well prepared for their future lives.
