Best-ever GCSE results for ATT pupils

Academy Transformation Trust celebrates top exam performance with above-average Progress 8 scores

Posted by Stephanie Broad | September 01, 2016 | Teaching

Once again Academy Transformation Trust is celebrating a significant increase in GCSE results, making this the best year yet for The Trust’s secondary academies. 

This follows a similar upward trend in A-level subjects for ATT academies this year. 

New performance measures for GCSEs are in place this year, which means a change to the way exam results are reported.

Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school.

An academy’s Progress 8 score is calculated as the average of its pupils’ Progress 8 scores. This gives an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the academy made above or below average progress.

Progress 8 scores were recorded last year so they could be compared to this year’s scores.

The latest results confirm that all ATT secondary academies have a Progress 8 score broadly in line with or above the national average. 

This is the second consecutive year that all of The Trust’s secondary academies results have been above the Government’s minimum floor standard.

Ian Cleland, CEO of Academy Transformation Trust, said: “We are incredibly proud of each of our academies for once again performing in line with or better than national averages which represent significant progress for our pupils. 

“These results are the outcome of hard work and commitment of both pupils and staff along with the support from parents and the wider community.  

“Well done to all – together we will continue to build on this success and we wish our pupils all the best in the years ahead.”
