The Performance of Disadvantaged Pupils

Whilst we still have more work to do in closing the gap for our boys from more disadvantaged backgrounds, the majority of those from less affluent backgrounds make the same progress and attain at the same level on average as other pupils.

Our Progress 8 Score was -0.29, which although less than the school average is well above the national figure for boys, which was -0.52 in 2016 .

Similarly, Beechen Cliff’s FSM6 Attainment 8 Score of 49 is well above the national figure for boys, which was 37 in 2016.
