New performance measures have been introduced in 2017, which for the first time in English and Maths includes a new 1-9 grading system. There is also a progress score for the school which will be updated as it becomes available on the Department for Education website.  The school's performance in the new grading system in 2017 has been 35% above Grade 5 in English and Maths, a strong pass. When using the old C grade equivalent, Grade 4, 75% of students have achieved English or Maths. Twenty percent of students achieved above a grade 7 in English or Maths. The percentage achieving the English Baccalaureate has increased from 2016; 16% achieved a standard pass and 13% a strong pass on this measure. The percentage of students achieving top grades (A*-A)  has also increased from 15.4% in 2016 to 16.2% in 2017. 

The Department for Education also provide an analysis of key school data including a snapshot of performance at St. Bernadette School. This website can be used by governors, parents and by members of the public to check the performance of the school.
