Attainment and Progress

Key stage 4 (Year 11)

The school's performance in GCSE exams is measured in terms of the students' progress compared with their starting point in Year 7, this is known as Progress 8. The grading of English and maths GCSEs changed in 2017 and the reformed GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high). Grade 4 or above in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a grade C or above in the old grading.

In 2018/2019, Harrogate High School’s examination results were:-

Progress 8 Score -0.6
