English Baccalaureate - Average Point Score per pupil - Girls (10751) Metric type

Help text
This is the Average Point Score per female pupil for English Baccalaureate. From 2018, the headline EBacc attainment measure is the new EBacc Average Point Score measure (APS) (rather than the previous threshold measure based on achievement of passes in each of the EBacc pillars). The EBacc APS is calculated by allocating points to a pupil's best grades in EBacc subjects, as follows:

-the better grade of either English language or English literature (both subjects must be taken);

-the grade for maths;

-the best two grades from exams taken in science

- grades will be taken from the following:

- if the single sciences option is chosen, three out of four single sciences must be chosen.

The best two grades will be taken from these subjects.

- grades for GCSE combined science.

- the better grade of either geography or history; and

- the best grade in a language.

These points are totalled for each pupil, with a zero for any missing EBacc subject areas (pillars), and then divided by six to create an average point score per pupil. These scores are added together for all 4 pupils in a school's end of key stage 4 cohort, and divided by the number in the cohort, to calculate the school's EBacc Average Point Score. Results for 2019/20 and 2020/21 includes grades awarded to students, when exams were cancelled, due to Covid-19 and are not comparable with earlier years. Instead, for 2020/21, pupils were only assessed on the content they had been taught for each course. Schools were given flexibility to decide how to assess their pupils’ performance.

Figures for all state-funded schools include local authority maintained mainstream schools, academies, free schools, city technology colleges, further education colleges with provision for 14 to 16 year-olds and state-funded special schools. They exclude independent schools, independent special schools, non-maintained special schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas.
