Masha Allah to all of our pupils as PMGHS celebrates another outstanding year of GCSE results. Based upon the progress that our pupils make at GCSE, we are the highest performing school in Lancashire. We are exceptionally proud of the achievements of all of our pupils. We congratulate them on their hard work and dedication. We know that the outstanding curriculum they have studied and the excellent GCSE results that they have achieved, will provide them with a strong platform on which to build their future success. A special thanks to all of the staff and parents as well. We know how important this partnership is in helping our pupils achieve and often exceed their potential. Compared to local and national results, the pupils at PMGHS achieve outstanding results which are all well above the national average. Progress 8 is the government’s way of judging the effectiveness of a school. The Progress 8 measure takes 8 qualifications from every pupil and uses them to come to a judgement about the progress that pupils have made during their time in the school. This is expressed as a decimal number with 0.00 being in-line with national expectations. In our last published results, we received a fantastic progress score of 1.23 which ranked us within the top ten of schools nationally. This indicates that, on average, pupils at PMGHS achieve more than a grade better in all of their subjects than would have been expected of them.
2020 GCSE Results
Over 270 grades 8 and 9 were achieved across many subjects
For the last three years we have been the top performing secondary school for progress in the whole of Lancashire. This year our progress score has gone up, and the school is 11th in the whole country. A fantastic achievement! A special well done to Sameena Isat, Aiza Asif, Saba Bibi, Kawthar Bodi, Fowziyah Adam and Ammaarah Ingar who between them have netted an impressive 60 grades at grades 8 and 9, the highest available. Our most improved pupil is Ammaarah Ingar who, on average, made almost four grades more progress than she would have been expected to make. That is an amazing achievement.
Grades 8 and 9 demonstrate the very highest performance of pupils across the country, at PMGHS are delighted to report that over 300 grades 8 and 9 (169 grades at 8 and 133 grades at 9) were achieved across all of the subjects.
Almost 60% (58.1%) of all of the grades achieved in the school were at grades 9 – 7, with 98.2% of the grades being at 9 – 4. This was an increase from the 2019 results which saw 48% at grades 9 – 7 and 91% at grades 9 – 4.
