Academic Performance

On 20 October 2022, The Department for Education (DfE) released performance results for the 2021/2022 academic year on the achievements of young people in England at the end of key stage 4.

The information covers GCSE results and other qualifications that young people achieved during this time and reflects the change in the way GCSE results were awarded during the pandemic, as well as the changes to grade boundaries and methods of assessment.

The Featherstone Academy achieved below the national average for Progress 8 scores within the performance tables. The Progress 8 scores show how much progress students have made across eight qualifications between the end of key stage 2 and key stage 4, compared to similar students nationally.

The 2021/2022 national data does not capture results from early GCSE entries during this time. The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust has therefore calculated our performance results which include our early entry GCSE results during this time period.

Our Academy also saw 63% of students achieve Grade 4 and above in English and maths, alongside 40% of students achieving Grade 5 and above in English and maths, with no gap between the disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students:
