In 2018 Crown Hills was placed in the top 25% of the country for progress and was the 5th school in Leicester:

  • +0.25 Progress 8 (+0.89 for girls)
  • 40.7% of students achieved a strong pass in English and mathematics combined (grade 5+; equivalent to a high C and low B on the old grading system). This is slightly above the national average for all schools in England.
  • 13% of students were entered for the EBacc, with 69% achieving a strong pass (grade 5+).
  • The average grade achieved by a student at Crown Hills was a grade 4/5.

Crown Hills Performance Information 2017:

The way that schools’ performance measures are now judged is very different to the way in which they have been judged previously.

The key figure that schools report on immediately after exam results are available is the percentage of students who have achieved both English and maths GCSEs at a grade 5 or above, the ‘basics’ or ‘threshold’ measure. The best result for each student in either English language or English literature counts in this measure. There is no direct comparison between this figure and the results that we have previously published on our website.

For the year 11 cohort 2016 – 2017

• The Basics (threshold) figure was 32%.

• The EBacc is a measure that continues to be reported on. This year 8% of students gained the EBacc.

• The Attainment 8 or average grade was 41 points • Progress 8 validated figure is -0.01

A DfE video explaining how Progress 8 is calculated can be found here

This figure is a calculation based on the achievement across 8 subjects for each student based on whether they met, exceeded or were below expectations in each subject that they took. A figure is then calculated for the whole school. A figure which is below -0.5 is considered to be below the ‘floor standard’ in other words, below the minimum expected standards set by the government. This figure is dependent on how students across the country have performed. A score of 0 will be considered the National Average and 50% of schools will have a positive score and 50% a negative score. Our score although slightly negative is not considered to be significantly below the NA but is considered ‘average’ which means expected progress has been made. However, there is a ‘health warning’ with the data. Only students who have prior attainment data count in a school’s progress 8 figures.

What do students do who finish an exam early?

Students should use all of the available time on their exam paper and spend any time at the end checking their answers. In any event, they are not permitted to leave before the end of the exam. They must sit quietly at their desk and not disturb or try to communicate with other students.

When do students receive exam certificates?

Students will receive their Statement of Results on Results Day.

GCSE certificates do not arrive in the College until the end of October and as such will be sent out to parents in November 2021/2.

It is therefore very important that you notify the Exams Officer of any change of address. Any certificates returned to the College by Royal Mail as ‘undeliverable’ will be retained for one year, after which they will be destroyed.

Replacement certificates are available by direct application to the exam boards by the candidate. The exam boards will require proof of identity such as an original birth certificate and a substantial fee, currently approximately £40.00, per certificate.
