Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham has been ranked as the second best in the country for progress following the publication of the GCSE performance tables by the Department for Education today.
In the Government’s headline Progress 8 score, Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham achieved the 2nd highest value-added scores in the country with a Progress 8 score of 1.69. Progress 8 reflects the value that schools add to the progress of students, by measuring progress across eight key subjects from the age of 11 to the age when they complete their GCSEs. For pupils at the school, this means that on average they could expect to achieve almost two GCSE grades higher per subject than pupils of similar prior ability nationally.
Staff and pupils at the school are celebrating the exceptional results which represent the first set of GCSE results since the school was opened by Star Academies in 2015.
Asiyah Ravat, Principal of Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham, said:
“We are overjoyed by this exceptional first set of GCSE results, which will help our young men to go on to achieve even greater success in the future. The results are testimony to the hard work of our teachers, support staff, pupils and parents who have all dedicated themselves to achieving this wonderful outcome.”
Star Academies, the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which established and operates Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham, is celebrating another year of exceptional GCSE results across its schools. The trust has been named the top performing MAT in England for the second consecutive year. Five of the trust’s schools have been placed in the top 14 nationally for progress, with Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School in Blackburn securing first place nationally for the fourth consecutive year.
