We reported the excellent results of our GCSE students back in August. We are delighted to learn that the hard work put in by the students and their teachers puts Lady Manners School amongst the top performing schools in Derbyshire.
The Department for Education’s performance tables have been published this week with provisional results from the summer exam season. Our students have collectively achieved a ‘Progress 8’ score of +0.25 (“Above average”), which is amongst the very highest in Derbyshire. The score means that our students made more progress, on average, during their time at Lady Manners School than students across England who entered their secondary schools with similar Key Stage 2 results.
Progress 8 is one of the measures used by the Department for Education to evaluate school performance. It measures the progress children make between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school. Lady Manners School’s excellent progress measure is matched by the exceptionally high attainment of our students, which is reflected in further Government measure, the ‘Attainment 8’ score. Lady Manners School students have achieved well above both the Derbyshire and England average scores in these measures.
Well done to last year’s GCSE students for this fantastic achievement!
