A Level Results
Performance Measures for 2019 A Level Examinations (validated)
Our progress score for A Levels is 0.02 and for academic qualifications it is 0.03. This means that, on average, our students met or exceeded their A Level target grades. The DfE categorises this as average progress, meaning students broadly achieve expected grades.
B (38.57 points) is the average grade that our students achieve at Key Stage 5 (KS5). The Lancashire average is B- (35.12 points) and the national average is C+ (34.01 points).
22.3% of our A Level students achieved three A Levels at grades AAB or higher, with two in facilitating subjects. The Lancashire average is 15.1% and the national average is 16.5%.
All of our students left the school with a grade C or above in English and Mathematics GCSE. English performance measure: 0.00 (no students were required to re-take either GCSE Maths or English).
Student retention on their study programmes is excellent: in 2018, 96.3% of our students completed their study programme and took their examinations (A Levels) with us. This is higher than the England national average and the local authority average which are 92.5% and 92.3% respectively. 2019 retention data will be available soon.
Over 95% of our students proceed immediately into education, training or employment at the end of Key Stage 5. The Lancashire average is 90% and the national average is 89%. The overwhelming majority proceed to Higher Education. Some of our students undertake a Gap Year before continuing on to Higher Education or employment. Our students have again proceeded to a wide range of destinations.
