National GCSE Results 2016 and The Howard

The DfE released provisional information last week showing the national picture around the GCSE results in the summer, which shows that the progress our students make places us in the top 20% of all schools nationally. Of particular interest to us at The Howard was the national gap between boys and girls, and how our students had achieved compared to boys nationally. It is very pleasing to see that our local and national reputation as a school where results challenge the stereotypical view of underachievement in young men continues, as shown by the information below.


The Howard

Progress 8

It should be noted that the national figures for boys include all boys studying at all the different types of state-funded schools, including grammar and comprehensive, which makes the performance of our students even more impressive.
