Eden Girls’ School, Slough has today been ranked among the best performing schools in England following the publication of the Department for Education’s interim school league tables. The national GCSE performance tables rank the school as the 15th highest performing school in England.
In the Government’s headline Progress 8 score, Eden Girls’ School, Slough achieved one of the country’s highest value-added scores with a Progress 8 score of 1.19. Progress 8 reflects the value that schools add to the progress of students, by measuring progress across eight key subjects from the age of 11 to the age when they complete their GCSEs. It means that on average the school’s pupils achieved more than one GCSE grade higher per subject than pupils of similar prior ability nationally.
