The key area for development for the school from the Summer 2018 results was the Progress of Mid-Ability Boys and Pupil Premium students, especially in Maths & E-Bacc subjects.

In addition, we have been working on creating a more inclusive curriculum for all students; both in terms of current KS4 students through interventions and new courses, but also in the structure of our new curriculum for September 2019.

Headlines for Sixth Form – Summer 2018:

Measurement School National Average
Y13 Overall Value Added TBC 0.00
Y13 A-Level Value Added + 0.04 0.00
Y13 Academic Value Added + 0.03 0.00
Y13 Vocational Value Added TBC 0.00

The key area for development for the school from the Summer 2018 results was to maintain the excellent results in Sixth Form provision in the context of an increasingly able cohorts coming through from Year 11.

The legacy curriculum has hampered school measurements and the inclusion of historical add-backs (dropped AS-results, etc) then the school figures will come in slightly lower – though still in line with national averages. Indeed, the Summer 2018 A-Level results would be at + 0.13 if only students who completed their courses were counted – a benchmark far above national averages and other local providers.

Similar to Key Stage Four, we have implemented a new and more inclusive curriculum for all students and will be offering a wider range of vocational pathways, alongside our usual A-Level qualifications.
