Early Publication of Attainment Data
Today, we are all delighted to see how well Selby High School has done in the DfE published unvalidated provisional attainment data, in respect of the grades achieved as a result of the first entry* for a particular subject and not those achieved after sitting the examination more than once. The government believes that early publication of this data will support parental choices before the 31 October deadline for secondary school selection.
Our results are commendable in comparison to national and local data, even though we are still awaiting a number of remarks and clerical checks on examination papers taken by our student in the summer. Everyone at the school is proud of the achievements in the summer and even more pleased that these results have enabled our students to successfully move to the next stage of their lives:
61% of students achieved 5 A*-C GCSEs including English and mathematics.
We are very conscious that the national figures will be adjusted in the spring ready for the final performance table publication, however, from our current projections, using this unvalidated data, the school’s results, once again, demonstrate another robust year of students’ performance.
We hope you find the data useful and the following link will take you to the performance table for 2015. Results from previous years can also be found on the DfE performance tables’ website Department of Education – Performance Tables.
*First entry grades are the ones used by the DfE to highlight the comparative performance of different schools.
