The OFSTED framework and the Department for Education have this year introduced new performance table measures. There is now a great emphasis on progress rather than attainment only. The key headline measure is now Progress 8, replacing the previous attainment measure of 5 A*-C including English and mathematics.
We at The Hart School firmly believe in measuring success by the progress every single student makes across all of their subjects. This is a measure of the value we add during the students’ educational journey with us, regardless of their ability.
If you would like to compare our results nationally please use the Compare School Performance Service.
Progress 8 measures the difference between what a student achieves in their subjects and what national benchmarks require them to achieve. A score of zero indicates expected progress has been made. A score below -0.5 is regarded as below the national floor standard.
We are proud to announce that in 2016 our school has secured a positive progress 8 figure of +0.22 which means that, using the Government’s preferred measure of school performance, our students, on average, make greater progress than expected in every one of their 8 subjects placing The Hart School in the top 30% of schools nationally – an outstanding achievement!
The good outcomes of 2016 have been further improved in 2017 in relation to progress and attainment, with more students continuing to University. There has also been a significant increase in the number of students continuing into Y12. In 2017 78% of students accepted University places
