Kings Norton Girls’ School Ranks in Top 3% of the Country

With National School Performance Tables published earlier this week, Kings Norton Girls’ School is delighted to confirm it is ranked in the top 3% of the country.

The Performance Tables included the ‘Progress 8’ measure which looks at the progress each student makes from Year 7 through to Year 11. Our ‘Progress 8’ Score of 0.73 places us at 183rd out of 6530 schools nationally and 6th across the city.

KNGS is also positioned in the top 5% for Attainment 8 (a measure of overall attainment) with a score of 57.1 positioning us significantly above Birmingham and national averages of 45.7 and 44.3 respectively.

In relation to the schools performance measure of EBacc average point score, at 5.26 we again exceeded local authority averages of 3.98 and national average of 3.83, again putting KNGS in the top 5% of schools in the country for this measure. The EBacc score measures the average grade of students across English, Maths, science, a modern foreign language and humanities subject.

Following on from an outstanding set of exam results in the summer, these performance measures continue to confirm the achievements of students at Kings Norton Girls’ School.

Headteacher Nicola Raggett said “We are extremely proud of these results and I believe they are a reflection of the hard work, resilience and determination of our students and staff. A huge thank you to all staff for their care, support and for instilling the self-belief which I believe is a significant factor in the success at KNGS.”
