School league tables are a way of informing the public and prospective parents about the performance and teaching standards of a school in their area.
According to the Department of Education, Attainment 8 is a way of giving parents a more holistic view of how their children have achieved, and last Thursday’s publication of the league table shows us that Fyling Hall school has scored well above average for secondary schools in the country, and appears at the top of the table compared to other local secondary schools in the area.
The Attainment 8 score relates to GCSE grades achieved across 8 GCSE subjects including English and maths, while the % score indicates the percentage of students who achieved a C grade or higher in their English and maths GCSE. In the A level table, a point score of 33.56 indicates an A level grade just below a B.
Attainment 8 is designed to encourage schools to offer a broad, well-balanced curriculum; to focus on individual performance and to enter pupils into multiple subject examinations. This has always been our approach at Fyling Hall, and we are proud of our pupils and their achievements.
If you would like to come and see for yourself what makes our school so special, please contact Mrs Blackie at the school office to make an appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01947 880353). I will look forward to seeing you very soon.
Mr Allen (Headmaster)
