Progress 8 is the government measure for the overall progress of students at KS4.  The national average is set at 0.0 and the local Authority (Oxfordshire) average score for state-funded schools is 0.03. 

In 2022, the overall Progress 8 score was +0.38 and we are delighted that the Progress 8 measure for Blessed George Napier School will again be above average.  Final validated data will be published for all schools shortly.  

Our overall GCSE results in 2023 were as follows:

  • 74% of students achieved at least a standard pass (Grade 4 or above) in both English and Mathematics.
  • 75% of students achieved at least 5 standard passes
  • 85% of students achieved a standard pass (Grade 4 or above) in English
  • 67% of students achieved a strong pass (Grade 5 or above) in English
  • 77% of students achieved a standard pass (Grade 4 or above) in Maths
  • 65% of students achieved a strong pass (Grade 5 or above) in Maths

We congratulate our Year 13 again this year as they build on their excellent A Level and BTEC results.  34% of students achieved A*/B (including Distinction* and Distinction in BTEC) and most of them (89%) are embarking on higher education, choosing to study a wide variety of university courses including Natural Science and Law at Durham; Modern Foreign Languages at Oxford; Psychology at Warwick and Liverpool and Architecture at Reading.  We also have students moving on to study Biomedical Science; Nursing; Midwifery; Pharmacy; Sports Science; Cybersecurity; History; Geography; History of Art and Fashion Branding, demonstrating the wide number of career paths and destinations which our students move on to after their programme of study at BGN.  We wish them all well and look forward to hearing from them.  

For full details of the destinations of our Year 13, please see the Destination Map under the 6th Form tab.

Please note: Given the impact of the pandemic on school performance data, the government has said that direct comparisons to the performance data of other schools or colleges should not be made, and that data should not be compared with that from previous years.
