  • Progress 8 is the average difference between the Attainment 8 scores per subject of Cheney School students compared to all students nationally with the same Key Stage 2 results.
  • Attainment 8 is the average of the total of the grades in students’ best 8 subjects including English, Maths and 3 EBacc eligible subjects.
  • *Performance measures based on qualification results from 2022/23 cannot be directly compared to measures from 2021/22. This is because a different grading approach was used in 2021/22, to take account of the impact of the pandemic.
  • Grades given in 2019/20 and 2020/21 were given by the school based on internal assessments due to exam disruption. Our Progress 8 and Attainment 8 scores are estimated using software that compares our outcomes to those of a cohort of similar schools from the previous year.
  • The 2023 GCSE results put Cheney in the top 1,250 out of 6,440 state schools nationally for progress, so in the top 20%.

At the end of Year 11, the significant majority of students remain in education, many in our Sixth Form.
