Kingswinford Academy Results

Our Academy has a strong reputation for high achievement. Our results have improved consistently over the past four years and you can view our GCSE results, Progress 8 and Attainment 8 performance below.

2020 and 2021 exam results are not included in the table below because performance data is not being published by the Department for Education due to Covid-19. Our students' progress and attainment in 2022 significantly exceeded previous performance and they should be rightly proud of the extraordinary results they achieved through their hard work and dedication. 

This table contains the school's historic exam data. 2020 and 2021 results are not included as exams were cancelled in those years, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Progress 8

All secondary schools are judged on the amount of progress that their students make. This is known as the 'Progress 8' measure. This is the main headline measure by which schools are ranked and is published in the secondary school performance tables.

What does Progress 8 measure?

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in year 6 and their results in year 11 (GCSEs). It is a 'value-added' measure, meaning students' results are compared to the achievements of other pupils across the country with similar year 6 results.

A school's Progress 8 score is an average of all students' individual scores. It shows whether, as a group, students in the school made above or below average progress compared to similar students in other schools.

A value of 0 is the national average and therefore a figure above 0 is above average. A negative value would be below the national average.
