In previous years all schools’ and academies examination results were measured on how many students achieved 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C including English and Mathematics. From this year all students, schools and academies are measured on how much progress their students make from their achievement at Key Stage 2 in Year 6 to when they complete their exams at the end of Year 11. This is known as Progress 8 and was designed to encourage all students to study a broad and balanced curriculum. The Progress 8 measure is based on students’ progress measured across eight subjects and is a comparison of their progress against the progress of all other students nationally.  As the results of all students need to be analysed to calculate this measure, this headline figure will not be available from the DfE until late September.
