Swavesey Village College – GCSE Performance Tables

Cohort 2017 Results

Swavesey Village College students celebrate GCSE results

 

The Academy’s provisional Progress 8 score, the new Government headline measure that will determine the school performance tables from last year onwards, came in at 0.61 in 2016 meaning that students are on average making greater than expected progress by more than half a grade. This figure for 2017 will be confirmed later this year in line with the Department for Education’s national adjustments, but we expect it to be broadly similar.

Our overall results are in this table below:
