Today, the Department for Education (DfE) has released the first draft of performance measures for secondary schools on its website. Our school remains one of the highest ranked schools in the county.
Unfortunately, there has been a delay in the inclusion of our BTEC Sport results from an exam board – a subject where our students performed fantastically well. This has lowered the provisional Progress 8 score. Based on our data collaboration with other schools, we expect our Progress 8 score to increase to 0.35. This means that our students achieved, on average, over one third of a grade higher than students did nationally from the same starting points in every subject. The performance measures will be updated when the DfE publish revised data in January.
After five years of getting involved in the academic and extra-curricular activities at The Purbeck School, we believe that our students are much more well-rounded individuals and they are ready to tackle the next steps in their lives, whether that is sixth form, college or apprenticeships. All our school staff want to take this opportunity to congratulate our students. They have been a credit to the school and the community.
