% A*- C in English and Maths 76% ( 59% in 2015)

2015 16 chart

PP = 0.43

Non PP = 0.67

There is a gap between PP and Non PP in terms of progress but this is not significant. The progress of PP students is still exceptional with nearly all PP students on average getting nearly ½ a grade more than predicted.

This gap of 0.23 in the progress made between PP and non-PP students (0.42 compared to 0.65) however is smaller than the gap of 0.35 in the 2015 and also indicates that PP students have made significantly better progress year-on-year (-0.04 to + 0.42).

Results show gap between PP and Non PP in English is not significant but there is a larger gap between PP and Non PP in Maths.
