Baysgarth demonstrates consistently outstanding results!
18th October 2018
This week the government released its analysis of the 2018 GCSE exam results, and once again this has demonstrated that Baysgarth is the most consistent school in the local area for producing outstanding outcomes for students.
The Progress 8 figures are the main way that the government says schools should be judged on their outcomes. The government says this is the fairest way to judge a school because the figures are based on the progress each child makes at the school from the moment they start in Year 7 until they receive their exam results at the end of Year 11. It looks at every child, whatever their starting point or ability, so allows parents to get the best overall view of the success of a school.
Progress 8 was introduced in 2016, so we have now had three years of results from which we can draw conclusions. The results are all published online on the Department for Education website so everyone can see and compare how schools perform - simply visit www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables, where you can search for schools by postcode.
As you can see from the tables below, Baysgarth is the top performing school in the local area over the last three years. In the Local Authority, we are in the top two performing schools for our performance over the last three years.
Richard Briggs, Head Teacher, states “We are very proud that parents in our community can be assured that there is no better school around for achieving excellent outcomes for students. Combined with the fact that Baysgarth has the best facilities in the local area and is a fully inclusive school, we firmly believe there is no better place locally to give children the best start in life”.
