Performance

Performance information for schools nationally is published by GOV.UK. 

You can access the latest available school performance tables, which includes data about our students at Key Stage 4 by going to the DfE Performance Tables for The Ashcombe School.

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has indicated that direct comparisons between performance data for one school or college and another, or data from previous years, should not be made.
