Secondary schools in Dorset: CVA score

This page shows schools in this area ranked on the basis of their "contextual value added" measure, from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4.

This compares pupils' exam performances with the middle performance of other pupils nationally who had similar prior attainment, weighted to take account of their backgrounds.

It is based around 1000. The top 5% had a score of 1029.09 and above.

The ranking needs treating with care. Small differences may not be significant.

Smaller schools with fewer than 30 pupils taking the exams are not ranked.
