Student Progress at Mayfield School

Every year the government publishes a statistical report called Raiseonline about every school in the country that tell the story of their last set of Year 11 examination results. This year, for the first time, the report focuses on the progress that students had made during their time at secondary school. Our report makes very pleasing reading about the hard work of our students and the commitment of our staff to ensure that students make the best possible progress whilst at Mayfield.

What follows are some of the main headlines from this year’s report:

Mayfield was Significantly Above National Average Progress* in 2016 in:

• Overall progress 8 (0.24)
Overall progress in English, Maths, Science, History or Geography, a Modern Foreign Language and three other GCSE subjects
Around a quarter of a grade more progress per subject than the national average

• English (0.29)
More than a quarter of a grade more progress than the national average

• Maths (0.36)
More than a third of a grade more progress than the national average and in the top 10% nationally for middle and high achievers

• EBacc (0.30)
Nearly a third of a grade more progress than the national average and in the top 10% for high achievers
EBacc is the combination of English, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a Modern Foreign Language. 39% of our students took this combination.

• Science (0.33)
A third of a grade more progress than the national average

• Languages (0.39)
More than a third of a grade more progress than the national average

• Humanities (0.64)
More than two thirds of a grade more progress than the national average and in the top 10% nationally, including economically disadvantaged students

*Explanatory Note

  • The way that the report works is that it shows progress as a + or – figure around zero.
  • A score of zero means that a student has made exactly average progress compared to the rest of the students in the country.
  • A positive figure means that they made better progress than average whilst a negative figure means they made less than average progress.
  • Most schools and students will fall in a range between -0.5 and +0.5. So in our case for example, in Humanities, students made on average two thirds of a grade better progress than students nationally.

    As has been the case for many years now, all of those who applied to go to university have been successful in securing their places almost all at their first choice.  Destinations include UCL, Kings, Nottingham and many, many more.  Increasingly I am happy to say that more students are securing degree linked Apprenticeships with among others, TFL and the BBC.  Whatever their destination, I would like to congratulate all of them for their successes and thank them for their contribution to Mayfield over the years.

    More information will follow shortly.
