Attainment 8 is the new measure introduced by the government to measure a student's GCSE achievements.
We have used the same system for our Year 9 students as well in order to provide a clear level of continuity between Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
The government directs as to which subjects may be counted towards the Attainment 8 score, as outlined below. The illustrations show how this calculation is put into practice at Sale Grammar School.
