Rainhill High School

About this Data

These figures tell you about the performance of pupils at Rainhill High School at key stage 4 (school years 10 and 11), which are the last two years of the secondary phase of education. These figures were published in January 2017 and revised in April 2017, and relate to pupils who completed key stage 4 in the summer of 2016.

Attainment 8 Score

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.​

Grade C or Better in English and Maths GCSEs

 

Entering for the English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. A pupil is considered to have ‘entered’ for the English Baccalaureate if they entered for qualifications in English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography.​

Achieving the English Baccalaureate

 

Staying in education or entering employment

This measures the number of pupils who either stayed in education or went into employment after year 11 (after key stage 4). The data published in January 2017 is for pupils who finished year 11 in 2014, which is the most recent data currently available.​

 

Progress 8 score


This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2 and the end of key stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2. This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2.

A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2.

A negative progress score does not mean pupils made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 2.

 

Rainhill Sixth Form Centre

About these results:

These figures tell you about the performance of students at Rainhill Sixth Form Centre at the 16 to 18 phase of education. These figures were published in January and March 2017, and data on attainment, English and maths, retention, and completion and attainment were revised in April 2017. They relate to students who completed their 16 to 18 studies in the summer of 2016, except where stated otherwise.
The number of students shown for each type of qualification is the number who entered at the college in 2016. Some students are included in more than one group - for example, a student who studied an A level will be counted in "A levels" but also in "Academic qualifications".

A-Levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, maths, sciences, languages and humanities. The primary purpose of A levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide.
