Mercia School received its first set of GCSE results in August 2023. A thorough dataset outlining our results can be found on the government’s website here:
Some headlines that we are especially proud of:
Progress 8: +2.23 (England average: -0.03)
This figure placed us 3rd in England and means pupils at Mercia make over 2 full grades more progress than the peers in an ‘average’ secondary school.
Progress 8 (disadvantaged): +2.18 (England average non-disadvantaged: + 0.17)
Pleasingly, there was no gap between our disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged cohorts.
Attainment 8 score: 69.9 (England average: 46.2)
This means that the average grade achieved by Mercia pupils was Grade 7.
EBACC Average Point Score: 6.95 (England average: 4.05)
This means, on average, pupils achieve Grade 7 in the EBACC suite of subjects. 100% of our pupils are entered for EBACC (English, Maths, Science, Geography/History, a Modern Foreign Language).
Grade 5 in English and Maths: 90% (England average: 45%)
Grade 4 in English and Maths: 97% (England average: 65%)
