The table above provides information relating to the Government’s headline measures for GCSE results. The national performance tables provide further information.



The Basics measure indicates the proportion of students achieving a 'strong pass' grade (5) in both English and Maths.

The Attainment 8 score is calculated by attributing a point score to each GCSE grade and adding the best 8 GCSE grades a student achieves together.

The Progress 8 score indicates whether students achieved more or less, on average, than the grades they were expected to achieve given their prior attainment (i.e. Year 6 SATS results). A score of +0.5 would indicate students, on average, achieve half a grade above expectation.

The EBacc average points (English Baccalaureate) measure shows the average grade acieved in English, Maths, Science, either Geography or History and a foreign language. Students must take this combination of subjects to be included in the measure. Farmor’s School offer a free choice of subjects at GCSE and do not require students to take Geography, History or a foreign language as we believe that this is not suitable for all students.
