Progress 8 and Attainment 8

From 2016, Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are the two key measures which the Department for Education will use to judge school performance.

Progress 8 is based on pupils’ progress measured across eight subjects: English Language or Literature, Mathematics, three other English Baccalaureate subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages) and three further approved qualifications.

Attainment 8 is the pupils’ achievement across these eight subjects in total grade points.
