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 who got similar results at the end of primary education.

​The school's score is -0.17, which is considered average. The Newcastle upon Tyne average score for state-funded schools is -0.27.

A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got 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.
