In 2014 the school achieved the highest results in the history of the school, either as St Michael’s or as Holy Trinity, both in terms of attainment and progress. Results were higher than National and a continuation of a 7 year trend of sustained improvement. At 5 A* – C including English and Maths, results over the last 5 years improved by 15%

Following a sharp drop in 2015, results recovered in 2016 to near national levels.

From 2016, the government no longer publishes percentages achieving 5A*-C including English and maths or percentages making expected progress in English and Maths. These are shown here for comparison purposes. The new measures are the Attainment 8, progress 8, A*-C in English and Maths and English Baccalaureate.

EBacc (English Baccalaureate)

To achieve the EBacc, students must achieve a grade C or above in English, Mathematics, 2 sciences, a modern foreign language and either History or Geography.

Progress 8

This measure is based on students’ progress measured across 8 subjects: English, mathematics, 3 EBacc subjects and 3 other subjects.

Attainment 8

This measure is based on students’ average achievement in the same suite of subjects as the Progress 8 measure.
