KS4 Performance Snapshot


The average number of GCSE entries per pupil at Morpeth is the 68th highest of all secondary schools in England, placing the school in the top 2% of all schools. This is the highest of all schools in Tower Hamlets, with Morpeth pupils on average taking two more GCSEs than at other Tower Hamlets schools.

Progress Headlines

The 2023 Morpeth ‘Progress 8’ score is in the DfE ‘Above Average’ band, placing the school in the top 27% of schools nationally. The government’s decision to not include GCSEs taken during COVID-impacted exam series in ‘Progress 8’ measures for 2023 means that Morpeth School’s ‘Progress 8’ score was impacted on the downside, particularly for EBacc and languages. Including these entries provides a ‘Progress 8’ score of +0.36.

The English GCSE progress score is ‘well above average’, placing Morpeth in the top 20% of all schools nationally. Progress in ‘non-EBacc’ subjects (our ‘Options’ subjects) is also considered ‘well above average’, in the top 13% of all schools in England.

Pupils from across socio-economic backgrounds make good progress, and disadvantaged students being particularly strong across subjects. The progress of pupils with high prior attainment is in the top 10% of secondary schools nationally.
