* Attainment 8: Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureat qualifications (which includes the sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages), and three other additional approved qualifications.

** This is the percentage of pupils who achieved grade4/grade 5 or above in the reformed English and maths GCSEs . Reformed GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high). Grade 5 in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a high grade C or low grade B in the old grading.
