Value Added Scores

A pupil’s value added score is a comparison of their results at GCSE and equivalent and the average performance of other pupils with a similar ability. The individual pupil scores are added together and averaged to produce the school level VA measure. This number is presented as a number based around 1000. Measures above 1000 represent schools where pupils on average made more progress than similar pupils nationally.

2014 2015 2016
The Hamble School VA Score 959.7 973.5 1014

Progress 8

Progress 8 is a new secondary accountability measure (introduced in 2016) aimed at measuring the progress of pupils across a selected set of 8 subjects.

It is a type of value added measure, meaning that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment.

The school’s Progress 8 score is the mean average of its pupils’ Progress 8 scores.

This is therefore calculated by adding each individual pupil’s Progress 8 score, and then dividing this total by the number of pupils.

2015 2016
The Hamble School Progress 8 Score -0.31 0.1
