Excellent National League Table Results Again!

We are really proud of the progress made by all our students that has led to St Bart’s coming top of West Berkshire secondary schools in this year’s Government league tables, significantly ahead of other schools in the district. For the second year running the tables are calculated using the new Progress 8 scheme which measures students’ performance from leaving primary school by 8 GCSEs.

It is a tremendous achievement to secure a Progress 8 score of 0.4 for two successive years at Key Stage 4.  Comparing the performance of St Bart’s students to those in similar schools nationwide, there are no schools with better achievement within a 75-mile radius.
