Oaks Park High School GCSE Results 2017
Below is a summary of the draft school progress measures information that will be released by the DFE on the 12th October via www.compare-school-performance.co.uk.
The 2017 GCSE results were excellent and reflect the hard work, commitment and determination by the students, staff, parents/carers and governors of Oaks Park High School. The Progress 8 measures are the key indicators used to compare progress made compared to Key Stage 2 starting points. The positive values across the summary data represents above expected progress and well above for many. (A score of zero reflects expected progress, a score of +/-0.5 represents half a grade above or below expected progress for students and courses for that measure).
