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.
