Nonsuch recognised for adding outstanding value


 

Nonsuch High School for Girls ranked in 13th highest place nationally for the value added progress their students make at GCSE.

The ranking comes from the Department for Education which has recently published its ‘Progress 8’ scores, which measure schools across England & Wales by how much difference (or value added) they make to pupils progress from the beginning of their secondary school career in Year 7 to when they take their GCSEs in Year 11.  In ‘Progress 8’, a score of greater than 1 is regarded as an outstanding performance and only around 30 schools in the country achieved this.  For 2016-17, Nonsuch has achieved a Progress 8 score of 1.15.

Amy Cavilla, Headteacher of Nonsuch High School for girls said “We are delighted to get one of the highest Progress 8 scores in the country. The students deserve this recognition for their hard work and commitment, supported by their parents and our expert and dedicated staff add tremendous value on top of that, of which I am very proud. We are particularly pleased with how well students fared in the new English and Maths GCSEs.”
