Progress 8

This year, the Government has introduced a new performance measure called Progress 8 which indicates the progress made by students in secondary school across eight key subjects including English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages. Harris Academy Purley’s score was +0.1 (click here to learn more about Progress 8). This is considerably higher than the national average, which is always set at 0.

Bart Cannon, Principal, said:

“This is an excellent set of GCSE results. Our students have made strong progress this year and many have achieved the very top grades, which will open doors to prestigious further education and careers. Well done to all students and staff.  Their hard work during the year has paid off."

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 measures a student's average grade across eight subjects – the same subjects that count for Progress 8. For a student, you add up their points for their eight subjects and divide by 10 to get their Attainment 8 score. The Academy's Attainment 8 score is the average of all students' scores. Students who do not take eight subjects, score zero for any unfilled slots.  Harris Academy Purley's Attainement 8 score was 49.18.

English Baccalaureate (EBacc)

The English Baccalaureate is a performance measure of students who achieve grade C or above in English, Mathematics, History or Geography, Science and a language. It is not a qualification in itself. 19% of Harris Academy Purley students achieved the English Baccalaureate.

 

Key Stage 5 Results (Sixth Form) 2016
