Progress 8 - Excellent every year

The Progress 8 (P8) measure is a secondary school accountability system. It aims to encourage schools to teach a broad curriculum and reward schools that teach all pupils well. It measures pupils’ progress across eight subjects from age 11 to 16.

In 2016, 2017 and 2018 (i.e since P8 was introduced) Freman College has achieved P8 scores that put it in the top 5% to 15% of schools nationally. In 2018 the P8 score was 0.45.
