Progress 8 is a measure of school performance. It replaces the previous measure of 5A*-C and shows how well pupils of all abilities have progressed, compared to pupils with similar academic starting points in other schools.
Progress 8 is a measure of the progress children make between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school. It’s designed to encourage good quality teaching across a broad curriculum.
Progress 8 is based on students’ performance in eight qualifications. These are English and Maths, up to three subjects from the Ebacc list, and students’ three highest scores from a range of other qualifications, including GCSEs and approved non-GCSEs. English and Maths are given double weighting to reflect their importance. The average Progress 8 score of all secondary schools nationally is 0 and all schools have an equal chance of getting a high Progress 8 score.
