The Attainment 8 score is calculated by attributing a point score to each GCSE grade and adding the best 8 GCSE grades a student achieves together.

The Progress 8 score indicates whether students achieved more or less, on average, than the grades they were expected to achieve given their prior attainment at Key Stage 2.  A score of 0 indicates students, on average, achieved in line with expectation.
