We are excellent at producing students who do better than expected. Not just locally, but on a national level, we rank in the top performing 25% of all schools and colleges in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, for adding value to a student’s education.
Based on the A Level Performance System (ALPS) 2017 analysis of 2,890 schools and colleges nationally, we are in the top 25% for A Level performance. Value added is measured by comparing students’ predicted achievement based on their GCSE results with their actual achievement at A Level.
This means, that if you choose to study with us, you are very likely to achieve results that surpass expectations and therefore maximise your potential to go on to Higher Education or employment.
