At Kingsthorpe College we believe strongly in continually reviewing all that we do in order to maximise the attainment and progress of all our students.

We also believe in transparency about our strengths and areas for development. The following data shows our performance, as you can see, despite the fact that our students start secondary education in Year 7 with us at a lower level than national, we are quickly closing the gap between the performance of our students and those at a national level. Indeed in many cases we are now surpassing them.

Secondary (Key Stage 4) Performance 2016
Percentage achieving a good pass in Maths and English 55%
Percentage of pupils achieving EBacc 9%
Progress 8 score 0.26
 (School is above National Average)
Attainment 8 score 48.8
Destinations (percentage of students who continue in education or training, or move on to employment in the year after the end of key stage 4) 92%
