Attainment 8 – Each grade a student achieves carries points. A8 is the average total points that the students scored with their qualifications. The bigger the number the better.
Progress 8 – All schools nationally are judged against the progress students make from KS2 through to the end of KS4. Progress 8 compares pupils’ key stage 4 results to those of other pupils nationally with similar KS2 results. The bigger the number the better with the national average being 0.
