**Attainment 8

Schools get a score based on how well students have performed in up to eight qualifications, which include English, maths, three EBacc qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications.

***English Baccalaureate (EBacc)

A student is considered to have entered for the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) if they entered for qualifications in English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography. It is not a test or qualification, it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. An average point score (APS) is calculated for students across the five pillars of the EBacc, allocating points to a student’s best grades and dividing by six (the science grades count in two pillars, meaning a total of six pillars) to create an average point score per student.
