The graph below shows Pattison College A*-C results (including English & Maths) compared to England average. From 2017 the graph shows the percentage of pupils achieving Grade 4 or above in English and Maths. This reflects the reform of GCSEs and the change to a new grading scale from 9 (top grade) to 1, with 4 being the equivalent of a C.
In 2018 there were only 5 Year 11 pupils and therefore the data is suppressed in the DfE Performance Tables. The DfE Progress 8 measure for this cohort was 4.08. This score is “well above average” being higher than 0.5. The average is 0. Only “About 14% of schools in England” have achieved “well above average”.
We are delighted with our 64% pass rate of 5 A* – C including English and Maths in 2014, the year when GCSEs were being marked more rigorously and grades were affected nationally, as can be seen above.
