After a hiatus during the pandemic the DofE returned to publishing school data in 2022.
The extracted headlines included below are from the DofE school performance website where you can easily access and search additional performance data relating to the school. The performance data should always be handled with care especially following the pandemic and recovery from it, given the measures taken to protect health during it. Although data in 2023 has been assessed broadly in line with the standards of assessment in 2019 the experience of students completing their GCSE's in 2023 was very different to those completing theirs in 2019.

KEY STAGE 5 PERFORMANCE 2022
Progress (Academic Value Added Score)
National value added data is not being published by the DfE this year. This is because this year students were assessed against 2019 standards, but the students who sat A Levels in 2023 had nationally elevated baselines following their GCSE's being determined by centre assessed grades in 2021. As a result comparisons between years are unreliable, and not necessarily a helpful guide to evaluate performance.
Progress (Applied General Value Added Score)
