Results Explained

Progress 8 and Attainment 8 count only the following subjects:

  • English (double weighted if both language and literature are taken)
  • Maths (double weighted)
  • Best 3 Ebacc subjects (Modern Foreign Language, History, Geography, Science, Computing)
  • Best 3 other approved qualifications from the list published by the Department of Education

 

Progress 8 is a value-added measure. A Progress 8 score of +0.5 means that on average, students would achieve a grade above expectations in half their subjects (as calculated by the government based on KS2 attainment).

Attainment 8 is an attainment measure. 40 = average grade of a grade 4.

The English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) is a combination of subjects which the government believes to be the foundation of a good academic education. The Ebacc must include: English, maths, two sciences, history or geography and a Modern Foreign Language).

Results Explained

We are committed to providing a comprehensive Level 3 programme with access to positive progression for all students at age 17 and 18, not only for Wickersley students but for the broader Rotherham community to which we cater at Key Stage 5. Our entry requirements are not elitist, and selection for courses is based on ability to access the course and achieve a positive outcome, and students are guided through these choices.

 

Destinations:

The University picture is changing and this year 40% of our students accepted unconditional offers.  In most cases, we would discourage students from accepting such offers, as they can lead to low aspirations and a loss of purpose and poor effort in Year 13.

Our students move on to very positive destinations, particularly those students who apply to the best universities.  21% of our students who finished their A-levels in 2019 will attend a Russell Group university, which is 10% higher than the national average of 11%.

 

Value added:

Key stage 5 data is assessed by a value-added score which shows how well students have progressed in comparison to students nationally with the same KS4 prior attainment.

This score is expressed as a proportion of a grade above or below national average.  +0.5 would be the equivalent to performance half a grade above average for the intake of the sixth form.
