Students and staff celebrating remarkable GCSE results with new Progress 8 measure in school league tables
Students and staff are celebrating remarkable progress during their time at secondary school.
According to rankings released by the Department For Education, students who took their GCSEs at Clacton County High School made the most progress of any cohort in Essex.
The school achieved the highest Progress 8 score in the county – which is a new benchmark measurement used to track pupil’s predicted progress when they first arrive at the school compared to their actual grades.
Principal Neil Gallagher said the score of 0.7 was a remarkable achievement and believed it was also one of the top scores in the whole Eastern region and means students on average achieved an extra 0.7 of a grade per subject.
