Latest figures have revealed the Northamptonshire schools where pupils make the most and least progress.

The Department for Education ranks secondary schools according to how well pupils have progressed between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school, compared to pupils who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.

This progress is measured by assessing provisional 2018 exam results in English, maths and other subjects including sciences, history, geography and languages and is called the Progress 8 score.

A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.

A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.

A negative progress score does not mean pupils made no progress, or the school has failed, but means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.

Of the 20 secondary schools in the north of the county four were rated well above average, two were above average, eight were average and six were below average.

Earlier this week we reported that Sir Christopher Hatton Academy in Wellingborough was the county’s highest performing school.

Director of secondary standards Andrew Wilson said: “This is another incredible set of results for Sir Christopher Hatton Academy and demonstrates the dedication of our staff and students.”
