Schools across Ormiston Academies Trust have this week been ranked amongst the very best in their local areas, and nationally, for the progress students make across the curriculum during their time at secondary school.
The Department for Education (DfE) has released the national league tables for provisional results for Progress 8 – a measure which marks student progress across a number of key subjects.
Students and staff across the Trust have been celebrating their achievements, with many securing scores above or well above the national average, demonstrating the added value that they are bringing to students’ education.
Stand-out academies which have been ranked by the Government as being amongst the highest performing for Progress 8 include:
Ormiston Venture Academy in Great Yarmouth has been ranked in the top 4% of schools nationally, and number one in Norfolk, for its GCSE results and the progress students have made whilst being at the school. With a Progress 8 score of 0.7, the academy added almost three-quarters of a grade to every subject taken by each student than was expected when they first joined the school aged 11.
Ormiston Chadwick Academy secured its top position in Halton for its Progress 8 score of 0.56, adding over half a grade to every subject taken by each student. As well as ranking first in the region, Ormiston Chadwick Academy’s results saw them reach the enter the top 7% of all schools in England for its score.
Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy has been rated by the Government as the top school in Stoke for Progress 8, in a year when it celebrated its best ever GCSE results with more students than ever before achieving a Grade 5 in English and maths.
Nick Hudson, Chief Executive Officer, Ormiston Academies Trust said: “I would like to congratulate our academies which have received such strong GCSE results this year, with some excellent Progress 8 scores marking the value that they are adding to students’ educational journeys.
“As a Trust, our priority is to ensure that every student fulfils their potential, no matter what their background, so it is excellent to see the positive difference that our academies are continuing to make for the young people we are so proud to serve.”
