Find out how North Devon secondary schools ranked in the latest provisional Progress 8 league tables, and how their scores compared to last year.

Chulmleigh Community College has come third in the county in the latest GCSE league tables.

The provisional Progress 8 figures measure the progress of pupils in state secondary schools between the end of Key Stage Two and their GCSE results at the end of Key Stage Four.

Chulmleigh Community College’s score of 0.40 ranks them above the national average and consistent with last year’s results.

Head teacher Michael Johnson said:“We were delighted by the endorsement of our results via the progress measure (Progress 8) for the school.

“The results are a testament to the hard work of the pupils and staff over a number of years, and are rooted in our deep belief that literacy and discipline form a solid foundation for success.

“We relentlessly promote these two vital foundation stones, which our continued and sustained success is built upon.”

Results are taken from eight subjects, including maths, English and science, with zero being the average rate of progress across the country.

Great Torrington School and South Molton Community College both dipped from last year, with both now at the national average, scoring -0.03 compared with 0.14 and 0.05 respectively in 2016.

Bideford College is still performing below average, but saw its Progress 8 score improve from -0.43 last year to -0.27 this year.

But Braunton Academy has dropped from 0.02 last year, to -0.32 this year, which puts them below the national average.

The Park Community School, The Ilfracombe CoE Academy and Pilton Community College all saw their scores fall from last year.

The Park Community School remains below average, with its Progress 8 score dropping from -0.18 last year, to -0.45 this year.

The Ilfracombe CoE Academy has dropped from below average to well below average, from -0.31 last year to -0.55 this year.

Pilton Community College also fell from below average to well below average, from -0.31 to -0.61, making it the worst performing state school in this year’s figures.
