Progress

For us, this is the most important measure; are our students achieving better than would be expected based on their prior performance?

We can say a resounding “Yes”.  All groups of students achieved positive Value Added Scores, on average achieving over half a grade higher per subject than expected based on achievement in GCSEs and a whole grade higher in Mathematics.

AS Levels

Not to be outdone, our year 12 students have exceeded expectations with some fantastic results, achieving high progress scores in all three of our core subjects: Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.
