The Department for Education (DfE) has released provisional data that once again places Norbury Manor in the highest possible grouping nationwide. The college’s Progress 8 score of 0.67 situates it firmly within the “well above average” band that comprises the top 15% of state-funded secondaries in the country.
Across the borough, where the local authority average score is 0.07, only two other schools scored higher.
For student achievement in English and maths the school performed exceptionally well, scoring 10% more than the average for Croydon and 7% more than the national average. The EBacc average point score for Norbury Manor also bettered figures for both the local authority and the country.
The school’s Attainment 8 score (51.6) – a measure of how well students perform across up to eight qualifications including English, maths, three English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages plus three other additional approved qualifications – was also substantially higher than both the local (45.4) and national (46.5) averages.
Amanda Compton, Headteacher, said: “We are delighted our students have once again done so well. We work hard to make learning enjoyable, engaging and challenging while, at the same time, monitoring progress and offering support where necessary. We see potential in all our students and want them to receive the grades they are worthy of. The publication of this data validates our approach.”
