Today (Thursday) the Department for Education published secondary school league tables, featuring the results of the first students to sit new, tougher GCSEs in English and maths.

The tables use raw GCSE results from last year and a raft of data from the DforE to evaluate how well pupils progress in a school since starting in secondary school and sitting their exams – resulting in Progress 8 and Attainment 8 scores.

Progress 8 scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -1 to +1. The data shows how many schools have missed the government’s floor standard of -0.5.

With a Progress 8 Score of +1.65, the value added score of pupils at Wembley High from primary school to GCSE is the second highest in the country.

Headteacher Amit Hathi said: “I would like to congratulate all students on their incredible GCSE and A-level results last year.

“I am proud to be the headteacher of this outstanding school where a culture of excellence and academic success is rooted in everything we do.

“Students and staff have worked immensely hard and with great focus and dedication to achieve an exceptional set of GCSE and A-level results.

“The school’s motto is ‘achievement for all’ and we truly strive for this. I am particularly proud of the achievement of all groups, including disadvantaged pupils, and I look forward to continuing to lead the school to improve the life chances of all students.”

Brent has also been named as the second top performing area for Progress 8 in England, with a score of 0.49.
