Best Grammar Schools in UK According to GCSE Rankings


The Progress 8 measure aims to capture the progress made by a student from the end of primary to the end of stage 4 key.

It is calculated for each student by comparing their Attainment 8 score (achievement of students across eight qualifications) with the average Entertainment 8 scores of all students nationwide who have a similar starting point.

A score of zero means that students are doing on average just as well in Key Stage 4 as other students in England who have achieved similar results at the end of Key Stage 2 – so a positive score means their progress outnumbered those of similar students who were previously at their level.

In an effort to strengthen GCSEs, the new system uses grades one through nine, rather than A * through G – any level above seven being equal to any level above A in the old system.
