Summer 2018 Results
Key stage 4 (KS4)
In the past, schools and academies have been judged on the number of students who attained 5 or GCSEs at grade A* - C. However, in the last couple of years, the government announced a change to the system, stating that it was more important to measure not just the students’ exam grades, but how much progress they had actually made. In support of this, the government has introduced a new system called Progress 8, which captures this progress by measuring the performance of students across a suite of 8 subjects (which must include English and Mathematics), highlighting how well a school or academy is actually performing.
Here at Sheffield Park Academy, we are very pleased to announce that under this new measure we have currently been placed 5th in Sheffield. Our Summer 2018 Progress 8 score was 0.53, which means that every single student, on average, achieved over half a grade more than what was expected of them. This is an excellent result for our students, staff and everyone involved with the academy and one which we are all very proud of.
Our sustained success is testament to the relationships between our staff, pupils and their families, each one of them playing their part in ensuring that every pupil achieves their potential.
