Fairfield High School (FHS) is among the top schools in the country for student progress, new Performance Tables reveal.
The Progress 8 outcomes for 2019 show that Fairfield students achieved higher grades in their GCSEs than might have been expected from the standard they were working at when they joined the school.
Schools aim for Progress 8 figures above zero: FHS scored 0.35. This was a significant improvement on the 2018 figure of 0.134 and means the school is one of the top three mixed secondary performers in Bristol, and among the best 650 schools in the country.
The Government says that Progress 8 gives parents a fairer measure on how schools are supporting all young people to achieve their best.
Principal Nick Lewis explains: “These figures are down to the hard work of our staff and students at Fairfield. The diverse population and positive community spirit at FHS all help make it easy for our students to do well.”
