* The equivalencies are not exact and should be treated with some caution

** The comparisons to 2016 do not really equate but at least give a general idea.

The key area for development for the school from the Summer 2017 results was the Progress of Mid-Ability 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 2017.

Headlines for Sixth Form – Summer 2017:

Measurement School National Average
Y13 Overall Value Added + 0.07 0.00
Y13 A-Level Value Added + 0.02 0.00
Y13 Academic Value Added + 0.04 0.00
Y13 Vocational Value Added +1.12 0.00

The key area for development for the school from the Summer 2017 results was to review the Sixth Form provision in terms of focusing the vast majority of students on three A-Levels, rather than four, and eliminating the AS route to secure a long-term focus on depth of study and a more manageable workload.

The legacy curriculum has hampered school measurements and the inclusion of add-backs (dropped AS-results, etc) then the school figures will come in slightly lower – though still in line with national averages.

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.
