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 Colleges score of 0.40 ranks them above the national average and consistent with last years 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.
