Denmark Road High School tops the table for Pupil Progress
Pupil Progress scores: “A sensational achievement” – Claire Giblin, Headteacher
Denmark Road High School has achieved the highest pupil progress score in the county. The school, recently named the Sunday Times State Southwest State Secondary School of the Year in their Schools Guide, Parent Power, has achieved the highest ranking of ‘above average’ in measures that calculate progress, attainment, good English and Maths passes and numbers of students staying in education post 16. Headteacher Claire Giblin was delighted with the Key Stage 4 progress figures published today: “It is fantastic that the unbelievable work of our students, staff and school community have been recognised with these latest league tables. We are rightly proud of our outstanding headline figures; 65 of our students achieved more than ten 9-7 GCSEs last summer with some 75% of all entries being graded above 7. However, our school priority remains ‘positive progress and well-being for all’. It is great to see this recognised today with a Progress 8 score of +0.90. This shows our students achieve nearly one whole grade higher at Denmark Road than students of similar ability nationally. A sensational achievement”.
The results, published on the Compare School Performance service on the gov.uk website, show Denmark Road High School achieved the 89th highest Progress score in the country across 6274 schools and the 42nd highest in terms of Attainment.
“We will never accept any of our students holding back in anything they do” Claire Giblin asserted “We are creating strong-minded independent young people at Denmark Road. They make amongst the best progress academically in the country here while also developing as individuals and leaders who stand out in a crowd, know who they are and know who they will be.”
Claire Giblin noted “This has already been a remarkable year. Starting with record breaking results this summer across A Level and GCSE. We moved into our new Sixth Form Centre this September and were announced in January as the Sunday Times Southwest State School of the Year. Now we have been recognised as the top performing secondary school in Gloucestershire. I am looking forward to the rest of the year already!”
