Exam tables

Progress 8 is how we measure our student’s performance.  This score 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.  This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications.

Park Vale Academy is pleased with the progress that our students are making.  With a relentless focus on improving academic outcomes, we believe that the success of our students will continue.
