GCSE Examinations – Summer 2016
71% 5+ A*-C grades including English and Maths
44% of students achieved the Ebacc
These are new records for Bridgnorth, not just the Endowed school
The Government has four new measures for parents to use to compare schools to try to remove the way some schools misquote data or do not quote accurate figures before the league tables come out:
BASICS: Students achieving A*-C grade in English and Maths = 71% at BES 2016
It is expected that the national average for this is 66% this year
Progress 8: +0.1
EBACC: At BES 44% of students achieved the EBACC compared to a national average of 24% last year. This was the highest result in Shropshire
The Ebacc demonstrates a broad and balanced curriculum. Students have to achieve an A*-C grade in English language, maths, two sciences, a humanity and a language.
Attainment 8: At BES this summer that was a C+. Attainment 8 looks at the 8 best subjects for each student and provides an average overall grade.
Of these four measures the one that schools can only estimate currently is Progress 8 because it is a figure that is calculated by Government statisticians for each school. It compares individual student progress to progress for that national cohort but schools can estimate it as we have done.
Please note that this is the first year that these data sets have been used officially so any result in these areas is a new record.
I would suggest that parents use these measures and the old measure (the percentage of students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths) to help you when comparing schools.
Grades Obtained by Year 11 Students
Please note: These results were gained over three years by the year 11 cohort as the examination entry policy was for students to sit GCSEs in years 9, 10 and 11 in the option subjects. This policy has now changed with the current year 11 students doing all GCSE exams in year 11.

|Further Additional Science||25||76||96|
