This table shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of Key Stage 2 and the end of Key Stage 4 compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2. A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2.
