These figures are based on students who entered at least one A level. A levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, Maths, Sciences, Languages and Humanities. The primary purpose of A levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university.
Academic qualifications include A levels but also other ‘level 3’ academic qualifications such as International Baccalaureates and the Extended Project Qualification. These figures are based on students who were entered for at least one academic qualification that takes the same amount of time to study as an AS level or above.
These scores show how much progress students at this school or college made in English and Maths qualifications such as GCSE re-takes, between the end of Key Stage 4 and the end of the 16 to 18 phase of education. A positive score means that, on average, students got higher grades at 16 to 18 than at Key Stage 4. A negative score means that, on average, students got lower grades than at Key Stage 4. Students are included in these measures if they did not achieve a grade C or higher in their GCSE or equivalent by the end of Key Stage 4 in that subject.
