*The headline figures were affected by grade boundary changes which were much talked of in the press at the time. Without these boundary changes, expected progress in English would have been 65%, Expected progress in Maths would have been 56% and 5A*-C inc Eng and Maths would have been 43%. We have put a series of measures in place to ensure we are not affected unduly by grade boundary movements in 2016 and beyond.

**The Progress 8 measure is new for 2016. This suggests that our students achieving on average slightly higher across 8 subjects than students nationally with similar starting points.

 Grade and points for a student's best 3 A-levels 

A best 3 A levels score is calculated for each student by adding together the points in their best 3 A levels, then summed across a school or college, then divided by three to give a best 3 A levels points per entry, and this is also expressed as a grade.
