Results and achievement

In 2018, our academic results contained some real highlights, demonstrating the excellent progress that children are making at St Helen’s.

One particular headline was at Year 6, in English, where the children’s results were some of the very best in the country. 93% of our children achieved the national standard in Reading, putting ourselves in the top 9% of schools nationally (Source: FFT). Writing was close behind, with 90% of children achieving the national standard, which is in the top 14% of schools nationally.

Scaled Scores

In 2018, pupils at St Helen’s averaged a scaled score of 106.4 in the assessments, which is significantly above the national average and in the top 28% of schools nationally.
