Students Of All Abilities Make Excellent Progress!

According to information recently released by OFSTED and the Department for Education, Higham Lane School has performed within the top 10% of all secondary schools in England, based upon its 2016 GCSE results.

The Department for Education has confirmed that the School achieved a Progress 8 Score of 0.43 for its 2016 GCSE results against a national average of 0.00.

The School's Attainment 8 score was an impressive 58.6. 83% of students achieved A*-C in English and Maths. Furthermore, the School is ranked eighth out of 55 schools with a similar intake of students across the whole of England.

Delighted Headteacher Phil Kelly commented: ``This is an excellent performance by the students and their teachers. Progress 8 is a new indicator that measures the progress of every student in Year 11 from his/her starting point. Our score indicates that students of all abilities make impressive progress at Higham Lane and that the School is performing extremely well.''

This impressive performance follows on from the School's excellent outcomes in 2015 and 2014 when the Minister of State for Education congratulated the School for being within the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England.

Due to its consistently high performance, Higham Lane School opened its own Sixth Form in September 2016. Students wishing to obtain a place in the Sixth Form should contact Assistant Headteacher Hanif Ladha on 024 7638 8123.
