We have put together a north-east Essex school league table based on provisional Progress 8 and GCSE results for 2017 published by the government this morning. See how your school performed and where it ranks in north-east Essex.

Heads have faced an anxious wait since GCSE results day in the summer to find out how they compare locally and nationally. They received their individual results earlier this week.

Parents of Year 6 pupils will also be able to use the data to better inform their decision on where to send their children next September.

The school’s Progress 8 score, which is largely welcomed, is based on the progress pupils make from the end of primary school until the end of secondary school.

Under the previous system, schools were judged on the proportion of students who gained at least five A*-C grades at GCSE, including English and maths. But the system was criticised for encouraging schools to focus heavily on pupils on the C/D grade borderline.

If a child makes the progress expected, the school’s Progress 8 score is 0. A score of 0.5 means pupils made, on average, half a grade more progress across their subjects than expected.
