* Green indicates performance above national average or in line with national average (2015 National average is the most current data available at present).

The Joseph Rowntree School’s GCSE results continue to show that our students progress well from their given starting points (at the end of Key Stage 2), compared to their peers nationally. The new Progress 8 measure compares student progress to students nationally, with a figure of zero representing progress that is equal to national progress across 8 subjects categorised across four groups defined by the Department for Education. The JRS Progress 8 figure was above this value indicating that our students make more progress across a range of subjects whilst they are with us, than similar students do nationally.

Within 2016’s progress 8 results, there were notable improvements in the progress 8 figures for English and Maths (which were in line with national average), and English Baccalaureate courses (e.g. Science, Geography) which were significantly above national average and also our ‘other’ GCSEs such as Sociology, Food, Drama, Art and RE.

Whilst our ‘English & Maths’ headline figure fell below 2015’s result, the fact that the expected progress figures are well above national averages indicates that our students do well in how they progress in their 5 years with us. Furthermore, it is worth noting that we increased our progress figures from both 2014 and 2015, despite there being a nationally reported fall in English and Maths GCSE results in 2016 (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2016/08/25/gcse-results-day-2016-sharp-decline-in-a-c-grades-as-critics-bla/).

Our Ebacc certificate figure in 2015 was the same as the national average (this represents the number of students getting A*-C in English, Maths, 2 x Sciences, a modern language and a Humanity subject), highlighting the broad and balanced curriculum we offer our students and the strength across a number of faculties within school. 

Students from The Joseph Rowntree School move on to a number of paths following Y11.  The majority join our Sixth Form to study A-Level courses.  A number follow courses at York College and other tertiary providers in the city, others have left to join apprenticeship schemes.  More information can be found below.
