Each year the Department for Education (DfE) publish performance measures for multi-academy trusts (MATs). For the period 2018/19, we were positioned 39th (out of 59) for medium to large sized MAT performance across the country, based on Progress 8 data – which measures a student’s progress from key stage 2 to 4.

Please note, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government has announced that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020, and has outlined accountability arrangements for 2020/21. Further information on what this means for the way school and college accountability will operate for 2019/20 and for 2020/21 can be found on the government website.
