Boldon School Positively Making Progress


Boldon School is celebrating record-breaking results again after the government’s release of the new Progress Eight performance measures.

Progress Eight is the newest benchmark for measuring a school’s overall performance.  The measure, which tracks the progress pupils make over five years, and across eight subjects – as opposed to five, has now become the government’s chosen method of gauging a school’s success.

Under the new system, Boldon School recorded the second highest Progress Eight figure out of all the secondary schools in South Tyneside, and shows the upwards journey the school has embarked on over the last few years.

Head Teacher Elizabeth Hayes said “We are thrilled and delighted at the ongoing success we are enjoying here at Boldon School. The new measure not only demonstrates the real effort and achievement of all of our students, but also reveals the hard-work and dedication of all the staff in our school.”
