Hackney’s Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School and Mossbourne Community Academy have been named in the top 50 top performing schools nationally.
Today (Thursday) the Department for Education (DforE) published secondary school league tables, featuring the results of students sitting GCSEs in English and maths last year.
The tables use raw GCSE results and a raft of data from the DforE to evaluate how well pupils progress in a school since starting in secondary school and sitting their exams – resulting in Progress 8 and Attainment 8 scores.
Progress 8 scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -1 to +1. The data shows how many schools have missed the government’s floor standard of -0.1.
With a Progress 8 Score of +1.2, the value added score of pupils at Jewish school Yesodey Hatorah from primary school to GCSE is the highest in Hackney, while Mossbourne (1.01) is the second highest.
Overall performance at end of key stage 4 in 2018 (Progress 8):
‘Well above average’:
