“Our results this year have been our best ever, yet again, now for the 5th successive year!

I am really pleased that the school Progress 8 number has improved again, and is now above the National measure, recorded at +0.33. For the first time we can say that students here at Prendergast Ladywell School do better than the national average.

It is disappointing, that this really important number will not be recognised in the DFE performance table when they are published. The data the DFE holds and measures for the Progress 8 score does not represent all the students we have taught, and who sat examination with us, our +0.33 calculation is reliable and inclusive of the whole cohort.

Our continually improving outcomes are built on the foundation of English Mathematics and Science, although we have areas of excellence across the school.

At the beginning of the academic year we set targets with the governors of the school to improve the progress of our boys, our high prior attaining students and our disadvantaged students in year 11. We have been successful in ensuring that all these cohorts now make progress in line with the national measure. I am incredibly proud of this, it demonstrates the effectiveness of the teaching and learning here at Prendergast Ladywell School, and the support and the high aspirations we have for all our young people.”

 Everyone has worked incredibly hard, and Prendergast Ladywell students are reaping the rewards of their dedication and talent.”
