Fines - pupils exams GCSEs schools results tables

The best and worst performing schools in Cheshire East based on GCSE results have been revealed, writes Stephen Topping.

Schools across England have been ranked by the Government according to its Attainment 8 and Progress 8 measurements.

Brine Leas scored 54.4 in Attainment – results achieved for pupils studying eight GCSEs.

That was the joint third highest in the borough alongside Sandbach High School and behind Poynton High (55.3) and Wilmslow High (55.7).

Malbank School scored and Attainment of 45.3, and Shavington Academy 47.2.

Sir William Stanier School in Crewe scored the lowest Attainment in the borough, with 32.1.

Students at Congleton High made the best Progress in Cheshire East – with the school achieving the borough’s top Progress 8 score of 0.38.

Brine Leas also scored well in Progress, its score of 0.36 ranking it third again, behind Sandbach High in second.

Shavington Academy scored 0.11, while Malbank scored a Progress of -0.29. Sir William Stanier also had the worst Progress score of -0.91.

A CEC spokesman said: “The council is constantly working closely with its schools regarding key school performance indicators.

“Both Attainment 8 and Progress 8 indicators help to assess our overall performance. Cheshire East’s performance across all its schools is extremely good.

“The provisional figures for 2018 show that for Progress 8, the council’s national, ranking compared with all local authorities, has again improved this year. We also continue to perform strongly for Attainment 8.

“It is important to point out that comparisons of trends over time for these indicators are challenging, as a result of changes to the GCSE assessment criteria.”

Fourteen of Cheshire East’s 21 state-funded secondary schools beat the national average of 46.4 for Attainment 8, while 13 bettered the national Progress 8 score of -0.02.

The Government introduced Attainment 8 and Progress 8 in 2016 as a new way to hold schools to account.

Progress 8 is considered the ‘headline indicator’ of school performance – measuring the average progress of pupils from the end of primary school to the end of key stage 4.

Attainment 8 measures the average score for students’ best eight GCSE results – and must include English, maths and subjects in the ‘English Baccalaureate’ such as science, history and languages.
