Performance & Results
The Department for Education has on online service that lets you find and compare schools in England. This is often referred to as performance tables.
The information on this page is for the 2018 to 2019 academic year. The Government will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020.
Secondary (Key Stage 4)
Progress 8 score
This score shows how much progress pupils made between the end of primary education (age 11) and the end of secondary education (age 16). This is compared to pupils across England with similar results at the end of primary education.
The school's score in 2019 was -0.17, which is considered average. The Newcastle upon Tyne average score for state-funded schools was -0.27.
A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England with similar results at the end of primary education. A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average. It does not mean pupils made no progress or the school has failed.
Attainment 8 score
The score is based on how well pupils performed in up to 8 qualifications. This includes:
3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages
3 other approved qualifications.
The school's score in 2019 was 40.1. The Newcastle upon Tyne average score was 43.6.
Grade 5 or above in English and maths GCSEs
Grade 5 is similar to a high grade C or low grade B in the old grading system.
The percentage of pupils at the school who achieved grade 5 or above in English and maths in 2019 was 21%. The Newcastle upon Tyne average was 39%.
Entering for the English Baccalaureate
A pupil has entered for the English Baccalaureate if they study English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography. The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification. It is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.
No pupils entered for the English Baccalaureate at Studio West in 2019. Studio schools provide a specialist technical and professional education and may have below average EBacc entries. The Newcastle upon Tyne average percentage was 41%.
English Baccalaureate average point score
The average comes from pupils' best scores in:
English language or English literature
science (the best two results from single sciences or results from combined sciences)
history or geography
We add these scores together and divide by 6 for the average.
The school's average score in 2019 was 2.61. The Newcastle upon Tyne average score was 3.76.
Staying in education or employment after secondary education
The percentage of pupils at the school who stayed in education or employment was 100%. The Newcastle upon Tyne average was 91%.
16 to 18 (Key Stage 5)
The Government will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020. Due to a change in age range, we do not currently have Post 16 year groups. Therefore any data available is for the academic year 2018/19. Post 16 intake will resume in 2023.
The school declares value added, which is the increase in progress that students make compared to the average student with the same average points score at GCSE. The average is between -2 and +2. This applies to all students who take any course at Level 3 in academic or vocational qualifications.
The link also includes the most recent national destination data and the progress data for students who sat GCSE English Language and Mathematics in Post 16.
