Progress 8 (P8) is a measure of how much better our students have performed at GCSE in comparison to students nationally with the same KS2 scores. This makes it a fair measure of progress. In this third year of the Progress 8 measure, The Morley Academy is once again ranked significantly above average (this includes about 17% of schools in England). In 2018, the academy achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.51, making it one of the top performing schools in Leeds, and a significant increase on +0.41 in 2016.
The following table shows how well we have worked with some specific cohorts of students:
These results show just how much our students have achieved in 2018, with all cohorts performing well above the national average. We are very proud of all our students with all prior attainment groups achieving GCSE results half a grade above the national average and Pupil Premium students outperforming non Pupil Premium students nationally. There is strength and depth in student learning and this could not have been achieved without a relentless focus on supporting our pupil premium students. They have gained GCSE results around 1/3 of a grade above national average and this indicates just how committed we are to “closing the gap” for our disadvantaged students.
