Attainment 8 Score of 57.1 . This is very high and equates to the average points scored per student across qualifying subjects (English and Maths – double counted; Three English Baccalaureate subjects – Sciences, Languages, Geography and History; and three other approved subjects) where grades are awarded points on a 1 to 8 scale with 1 point for a Grade G GCSE and 8 points for an A*.
