*A progress 8 score cannot be calculated for the 2020-2022 results, as the students in Year 11 have Key Stage 2 Scaled Scores and not fine point scores. Due to the absence of examinations in 2020 and 2021 the DfE has never indicated how progress will be measured when Scaled Scores are the starting point.

*A progress score has not been calculated for the 2020-2022 results, as there are no Level 3 benchmarks for this cohort. The DfE has confirmed that this will be “suspended until the 2023 to 2024 academic year” (April 2024).

We consider attainment and achievement to be outstanding. Students leave the school with an outstanding portfolio of academic qualifications. They are well qualified, well rounded young women and are well equipped for varied, fulfilling careers. The outstanding results achieved are testament to the hard work of students, the professionalism and dedication of staff, the continuing support of parents and the guidance and direction of trustees. They further cement The Folkestone School for Girls' already enviable reputation, locally and nationally, for delivering consistently outstanding academic results.
