Performance Data 2018-2019

Progress 8 score – Not available

This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2 and the end of key stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2.  Cranbrook School did not receive a Progress 8 score for GCSE 2019 as less than 50% of our year 11 students sat KS2 exams at primary school. Therefore the school will not feature in any of the associated league tables. Cranbrook School is extremely proud of the progress of our all our students. Year on year our Year 11 and Year 13 students outperform CAT and ALPs targets.

Attainment 8 score – 65.6 points.

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

% pupils who’ve achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and maths at the end of KS4 – 86%

% pupils entering for the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) – 94%

The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.

EBacc average point score (EBacc APS) – 6.44 points

The EBacc APS calculates a pupil’s average point scores across the 5 pillars of the English Baccalaureate, allocating points to a pupil’s best grades and dividing by 6 (the science grades count in 2 pillars, meaning a total of 6 pillars) to create an average point score per pupil.

% students staying in education or employment after key stage 4 (destinations) – 95%.   The data published in October 2018 is for pupils who finished year 11 in 2016, which is the most recent data available.  Data for 2017 and 2018 is not yet available from the DfE.

Cranbrook School Progress Score: +0.41% (NB: This is not a DFE performance measure)
