  • Attainment 8 score of 62 – in the top 1% of all schools in England
  • 93% of pupils achieved a ‘standard pass’ in English and Maths – almost 30 percentage points higher than the national average
  • 58% of pupils with low prior attainment at Key Stage 2 achieved a grade of 4 or above in both English and Maths, compared to 10% nationally
  • 57% of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds achieved passes at grades 9 to 4 in English and Maths, compared to 25% nationally

Tauheedul Islam Boys’ High School has been confirmed as one of the highest achieving secondary schools in the country, as demonstrated by data released by the Department for Education today.

The revised secondary school league tables place TIBHS third of all schools in England for progress, and in the top 1% for attainment.

In the headline Progress 8 performance measure, TIBHS can be proud of a Progress 8 score of +1.55, up from a score of +1.16 last year. Progress 8 scores reflect the amount of progress pupils have made during their time at secondary school, taking into account their prior attainment at primary school.

TIBHS’ Attainment 8 score of 62 places the school in the top 1% of all schools in England.

93% of TIBHS pupils achieved a ‘standard pass’ at grades 9 to 4 in English and Maths in a year when new, tougher exams were introduced in these subjects. This is almost 30 percentage points higher than the national average of 64%.

64% of TIBHS pupils were awarded the English Baccalaureate, a qualification that recognises pupils who achieved grades 9 to 5 in English and Maths as well as grades A* to C in two sciences, a modern foreign language and either History of Geography. Nationally, around a fifth of pupils achieved the E Bacc qualification.

58% of TIBHS pupils with low prior attainment at Key Stage 2 went on to achieve a grade of at least 4 or above in both English and Maths. This compares with a national pass rate amongst low attaining pupils of 10%.

57% of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds achieved passes at grades 9 to 4 in English and Maths, compared with just 25% nationally.

Principal Majid Ditta welcomed the confirmation of TIBHS’ high ranking in the revised secondary school league tables. He said:

“As the DfE publishes its revised secondary school performance data, it’s a proud day for everyone at TIBHS: our pupils whose results have helped the school appear in the top rankings, our staff whose hard work and dedication over many years has undoubtedly contributed to the school’s success, and our parents and carers who have supported their children in their achievements.

“It’s incredibly satisfying to be part of such a high-performing school, and indeed family of schools as our sister school TIGHS in Blackburn was confirmed as the top school in England for Progress 8 today.

“What is more gratifying is knowing the difference the team at TIBHS is making to the lives of our young pupils, giving them the best possible start in life regardless of their background or attainment at primary school. Together we will continue to support our young men as we provide them with an education of the highest standards to set them up for a bright future.”
