St Benedict's: top in Bury for Progress 8!
St Benedict’s has yet again come top in the Bury St Edmunds area for Progress 8!
As I am sure you are aware, the school league tables came out yesterday. St Benedict’s has yet again come top in the Bury St Edmunds area for Progress 8, Attainment 8 and for the number of students achieving grade 5+ in English and Maths. Our Progress 8 score is 0.46 which is above average, our Attainment 8 score 50 with 49% of students achieving grade 5 or above in English and Maths. Both Progress 8 and Attainment 8 focus on the results of a pupil's best eight GCSE results including English and Maths.
This reflects the hard work of students and staff and shows the difference strong parental involvement and support can give to your children’s education. Our staff are very talented and go above and beyond, often using their own time to help and support students. We pride ourselves on the quality of teaching here and the quality of our Curriculum but also recognise that exam results are not everything and encourage our students to take part in extra Curricular activities as much as possible which increases confidence and self-esteem.
