Exam Performance Tables published show St Mary's students top of local schools!
The DfE has published the first set of school performance tables that use the new performance measures that focus on the amount of progress made by students from the time they enter a secondary school until the end of Year 11.
St Mary's has a Progress 8 score of +0.03. This means that St Mary's GCSE results this summer are above national average. St Mary's is the only local school to have a positive Progress 8 score. Congratulations to all students and staff who worked so hard to achieve these fantastic results! And thank you once again to parents/carers who support students and SMHS staff - you should be very proud!
