SGGS Students’ Prove Their Appetite for Success
at the Top School In Warwickshire for GCSE Results
Stratford Girls' Grammar is delighted to report that its Progress 8 score for the 2018 GCSE exams is 0.84. This means that their students made 0.84 grade more progress in each GCSE than similarly able students nationally. With an Attainment 8 score of 78.2, the school is again celebrating being the top school in Warwickshire for GCSE in terms of raw results and the progress made by the students. These results were in the more challenging GCSEs graded 9-1 where far fewer students were expected to achieve the top grades. Again, Stratford Girls' Grammar bucked this trend as 25 girls achieved 7 or more 9 grades in the new exams - a remarkable 6% of the national total of girls achieving 7 or more 9 grades.
Headteacher Jacqui Cornell said, “We are immensely proud to be Top in Warwickshire in the GCSE Performance Tables. The new value added measure shows that it is possible to stretch very able students. All the recent changes to GCSE qualifications have made it a turbulent two years for everyone, but our staff have maintained a focus on enabling our students to fulfil their full potential. Our position is testament to the strong relationships between students, staff and parents at SGGS and stems from hard work and commitment. Well done to all!”
Progress 8 is a measure of the progress students make from the end of primary school to GCSE across a range of 8 GCSE subjects. It is a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the progress of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment. Attainment 8 measures students' raw results (attainment) across 8 key GCSEs including Maths and English.
