Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding paid to schools in respect of students who are: registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), or have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years or students who have been looked after continuously by the local authority for more than 1 day.  

In 2016 at the end of KS3, Pupil Premium students performed in line with their peers at Nonsuch.  At the end of KS4 in their GCSEs, they achieved a Progress 8 score of 1.0 well above that of the whole school score of 0.73 for which the school was congratulated by the Regional Schools Commissioner, Dominic Herrington.

In 2017 KS3 pupils continued to perform in line with their peers. For their GCSEs whilst Pupil Premium students made greater progress than that of Pupil Premium students nationally, a gap appeared between the 9 PP students and the year group as a whole as the final Progress 8 score was 1.1 and for PP students it was 0.61. For Pupil Premium students the Progress score for English and Maths was very pleasing at 0.87 for English and 0.76 for Maths but less progress was made in the options subjects.

In 2018 KS3 pupils continued to perform in line with their peers. Whilst Pupil Premium students made greater progress than that of Pupil Premium students nationally at GCSE, there was a gap between the 10 Pupil Premium students and the year group as a whole, as the final progress 8 score was 1.21 for all students and 0.65 for Pupil Premium students. The Progress score for Pupil Premium students in English was pleasing at 1.0 and in Maths 0.7, but less progress was achieved in option subjects (0.4).

In 2019 Pupil Premium students at the end of KS4 achieved an estimated progress 8 of 1.22, compared to an estimated progress 8 of 1.17 for all students. They also have an ALPS grade of 1, which is extremely pleasing.

At KS5, PP students made better progress than their peers (ALPS 4 compared to ALPS 5).
