One of the Top Performing Schools Nationally

2017 Examination Results

Today the Department for Education published the school performance tables for the 2017 national examination results. The new headline measure is the Progress 8 score which measures overall progress made in students’ best eight subject qualifications.

A more detailed explanation of how the score is put together can be found here.

A Progress 8 score of 0 would indicate that a student’s achievement in these eight subjects is in line with the national average. This year the Roseland Academy achieved a score of 0.85. This means that our students achieved on average close to one GCSE grade higher than the national average in all of their best eight subjects, which is an outstanding achievement.

To put this in context, The Roseland Academy currently ranks the 36th highest score in the country out of 6480 schools*, placing us in the top few percent of all schools for performance. Our students are achievements are giving them the best possible starting point and the widest choices possible for the next steps in their lives.

The first release of the 2017 DfE Performance Tables has shown The Roseland Academy breaking records again by improving on last year’s fantastic results. This year’s Progress 8 score places us as not only as one of the highest performing schools in the South West, but well within the top 100 nationally out of 6400 schools.

We are proud to announce that in the most recent Times guide to “Top Secondary Schools Near You” The Roseland Academy is listed as overall second in Cornwall for GCSE results. The guide lists the top 10 schools for every local authority and uses the Average Points Score per pupil to determine the best schools. Of the many ways to measure student achievement, this is widely regarded as being one of the most broad and representative measures of School performance.

This prestigious accolade is testament to the ongoing hard work of our Year 11 students, their parents and the staff of The Roseland Academy.
