St Peter's School

Summary of exam results

Post 16 exam success

Our exam results in 2016 demonstrate the potential of our students:

Vocational +1.16 (APS 261) up from 240 in 2015 (national 215)

Academic  +0.11 (APS 197) up from 188 in 2015

The results in green highlight the results that are above those projected.  These projections have become more secure than those made historically because of the rigorous process used to moderate internal assessments which include the lifting of the boundary marks ascribed to each grade.  Internal assessments are also externally validated by recognised credible colleagues.

Year 11 Progress

Our students continue to demonstrate their potential when supported by higher quality teaching.  Our projections which are based on externally verified full GCSE exam papers which are randomly selected by the Deputy Head Teacher with responsibility for assessment and incorporate higher boundary thresholds than those applied when the exam papers were actually set.  These projections show the proportions of students expected to make 3 or even 4 levels of progress.  The subjects are coloured greed that are projected to improve their outcomes from 2015.

The Government now measures a school’s performance using two new indicators:

  • Progress 8

The amount of progress students make from their KS2 outcome to their KS4 examination results.  This is measured across 8 subjects which include:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Humanities
  • Modern Foreign Language

A school is deemed to be below minimum standard if the Progress 8 score is -0.5 (i.e. half a grade below the national average).  The national average is zero.

St Peter’s School’s outcome in 2016 is +0.1 i.e. students achieve better outcomes than can nationally be expected.

  • Attainment 8

This is a measure of students’ attainment across 8 subjects with the St Peter’s School 2016 result being 4.5.  There is currently no national comparable data available. 

Percentage of students who achieved both English and Maths is increasing
