BWA celebrates outstanding Progress 8 score
Brooke Weston Academy is celebrating a fantastic Progress 8 score of +0.57, which ranks it as one of the top four schools in Northamptonshire and in the top 5% of schools nationally.
The Department for Education ranks secondary schools according to how well students have progressed between the end of primary and secondary school. This is measured by assessing exam results in English, maths and other subjects including sciences, history, geography and languages and is called the Progress 8 score.
The average Progress 8 score of all secondary schools nationally is 0. Schools with a Progress 8 score of below -0.5 are not achieving the minimum standard expected by the Government. A score of +0.5 or above shows that students in that school are making well above the expected level of progress. Brooke Weston’s score of +0.57 means that it is not only well above the national average but also placed in the top 5% of schools nationally.
Associate Principal Mr Peter Kirkbride said ‘I am extremely proud that these results confirm that we are one of the highest performing secondary schools nationally. All of the staff and students are delighted at the exceptional progress made. This is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the whole Brooke Weston community.’
