Central Foundation Boys’ School has been recognised as the best performing school for progress in the borough.

Today (Thursday) the Department for Education published secondary school league tables, featuring the results of the first students to sit new, tougher GCSEs in English and maths.

The tables use raw GCSE results from last year and a raft of data from the DforE to evaluate how well pupils progress in a school since starting in secondary school and sitting their exams – resulting in Progress 8 and Attainment 8 scores.

Progress 8 scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -1 to +1. The data shows how many schools have missed the government’s floor standard of -0.5.

Overall performance at end of key stage 4 in 2017 (Progress 8):

‘Well above average’:

Central Foundation Boys’ School: 0.77

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson: 0.54

City of London Academy Islington: 0.5

‘Above Average’:

Highbury Fields School: 0.47

St Mary Magdalene Academy: 0.45

Mount Carmel Catholic School for Girls (now City of London Academy Highgate Hill): 0.28

‘Average’:

Arts and Media School Islington: -0.09

St Aloysius College: -0.12

‘Below average’:

Holloway School: -0.32

City of London Academy Highbury Grove: -0.46
