Pupil Premium: Overall, there is a slight variance between the attainment of PP students, when measured against non-PP (4.29 vs 4.9). However, this is within the same GCSE grade band – grade 4 – and only appears in fine level analysis.  Pupil premium girls attained significantly lower than both the PP boys, and the non-PP girls. This is a very small cohort, of only 5 students, and with the female PP outlier removed, the Higher prior attainers actually achieved the highest average attainment in the school.
