Continuing a consistent and very strong ‘year on year’ trend, Cranford students in 2022, have performed WELL ABOVE NATIONAL AND LOCAL AVERAGES across a very broad curriculum, including across all the EBacc subjects, and this leads on to high destination rates to the sixth form, employment/training and higher education (including top universities).


The Performance of KS4 pupils in 2022

• Students entering the EBACC subjects are 96% compared with a national of 39%

• Progress 8 score is +0.56 compared with a national average of -0.03

• Staying on in education, employment or training is 97% compared with a national of 94%

• Students gaining grade 5 in both English and maths is 55% compared with a national of 50%

• Attainment 8 score is 50.9 compared with a national of 48.7

• EBACC average point score is 4.81 compared with a national of 4.27


Progress measures show that Cranford students make excellent progress over Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. In all the key measures, Cranford students performed better than students nationally.



Following a drive to improve results, progress, and attainment for students in the Sixth form has continued to rise


At A Level, Applied General and Technical Courses, the value added was very positive compared with national, and the highest for Cranford to date.

The pleasing outcomes at A level are best described through the outcomes and university destinations of Cranford’s students.
