GOVERNMENT PERFORMANCE TABLES – ST CATHERINE’S IS THE TOP SCHOOL IN BEXLEY FOR PROGRESS

As you may be aware, the government publish provisional performance tables on how students at secondary schools perform in their public examinations at this time of year. These tables were published this week and can be accessed by following this link:

You can put in the name of our school or alternatively you can put in our area and select ‘secondary’ for your search. As you will see when you do this, St Catherine’s is the highest performing school in the area with a Progress 8 score of 0.77 and outperforms the grammar schools on the progress made by        students. According to the latest DFE data we are ranked 161st in the country nationally for overall     performance at the end of key stage 4 in 2019.

Schools whose students make the expected progress from KS2 (Year 6) to KS4 (Year 11) would achieve a score of zero.

Students are compared to others across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2. This is based on up to 8 qualifications which include English, Maths, Sciences along with Religious Education and their option subjects. A score of 0.77 means that St Catherine’s is in the top 15% of schools in England and that girls make progress of more than three quarters of a grade higher on average.

You can see from the tables that students of all abilities at St Catherine’s make excellent progress:

I am sure that you will agree that this is a fantastic achievement and could not happen without hardworking students, supportive parents and committed teachers. We are proud of our school and rightly so.
