Eden Girls’ School, Waltham Forest has been confirmed as one of the top performing schools for progress in the country following the publication of the Department for Education’s final GCSE league tables.
The performance tables, which publish the Progress 8 scores of schools across the country, ranked Eden Girls’ School, Waltham Forest as the 13th highest performing in England.
In the Government’s headline Progress 8 score, Eden Girls’ School, Waltham Forest achieved one of the country’s highest value-added scores of 1.19. Progress 8 reflects the value that schools add to the progress of students, by measuring progress across eight key subjects from the age of 11 to the age when they complete their GCSEs. This means that on average, pupils at the school can expect to achieve more than one GCSE grade higher per subject than pupils of similar prior ability nationally.

“We are delighted to have secured such an exceptional set of GCSE results. We hope these results will help our young women to go on to achieve even greater success in the future. The progress our pupils make at our school is testimony to the hard work and dedication of staff, parents and the pupils themselves. The whole school community has worked with real determination to achieve these life-changing outcomes.”
