Progress 8 score


It gives me great delight to share with you the performance of the School in the recent summer examinations.This is a public performance measure that informs how well students at this school have progressed from the end of primary school (Key Stage 2) to the end of Year 11 (Key Stage 4) compared to students in other schools. This is based on results in up to eight qualifications, which include English, Maths, three qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications. As you can interpret from the table, students at St Philomena’s progressed exceptionally well placing the school in the top 12% of schools in England. This is a wonderful achievement and testament to the hard work achieved by students, parents and staff. We are particularly proud of this achievement as this was based on the new, more challenging GCSE in Maths and English.
