2022 Results at Archbishop Holgate’s school

Archbishop Holgate’s school is a high performing, inclusive community in which all students fulfil or exceed their potential. Academic achievement for all learners regardless of prior attainment, gender, SEND and background far exceeds the national average.

Below is a summary of our results at both Key Stage 4 and 5. We will publish our Progress 8 scores for 2022 once these have been published by the DfE. However, our attainment scores in 2022 indicate our students continue to make excellent progress.

At GCSE we now have a long term trend of outstanding Progress 8 scores, +0.53 in 2017, +0.60 in 2018 and +0.79 in 2019. These results were the strongest in the city for the third consecutive year and they are the fourth strongest outcomes in the whole Yorkshire and Humber region.

+0.53 (2017)
+0.60 (2018)
+0.79 (2019)

The progress 8 performance for all students was almost four times the local average and this three year trend of excellent performance places our outcomes in the top 4% nationally. Whilst the EEF results place Archbishop’s first in terms of the performance of similar schools nationally for both all students and disadvantaged performance over the last three years.

Our disadvantaged students massively outperformed other disadvantaged students locally and nationally, a figure of +0.26 representing the fourth consecutive year of continuous improvement and progress twice as strong as all other students nationally. This is strong evidence that all students thrive at Archbishop’s.
