Ruskin tops new government performance measure in Lincolnshire
The Priory Ruskin Academy is delighted to learn that they have topped the Government’s league table based on the new Progress 8 measure, which assesses student progress from Year 7 to 11. The Academy is the number one school in Lincolnshire, including all selective and non-selective schools, and is the only school in Lincolnshire where progress is deemed ‘well above average’, the highest grade possible. This places The Priory Ruskin Academy in the top 3% of all schools nationally.
The progress 8 measure is designed to reflect student progress across core academic subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Languages and humanities. Ruskin’s P8 score of 0.51 reflects that all students achieve half a grade higher in these subjects than other schools nationally. The national average is set at a score of 0; Lincolnshire schools overall made an average P8 score of -0.11.
Headteacher, Rachel Wyles said: “ This is a superlative reflection of outstanding staff, determined students and supportive parents working together to achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils. At Ruskin, we work together to create a sense of Academia in a harmonious and highly engaging environment. We believe in challenging our students to be aspirational for their future, working with a real sense of team and purposefulness to nurture and celebrate creative thinking, resilience, respect and sheer hard work. I am incredibly proud of the utter commitment of the Ruskin team – this is a well deserved accolade.”
