Year 13 results and destinations

Last year our y13 cohort were taught at Ark Academy 6th form – progress has improved although comparisons with the previous cohort are difficult because of the number of BTEC pupils and the changes in these qualifications.  

Progress showed an improvement from the previous year, in all subjects apart from psychology. Progress was particularly strong in maths (+1.0) and sociology (+1.67). The Level 3 Value added score was +0.02 and the KS5 point score was 98.8. 

20 of our 21 Year 13 pupils secured a place at university with one child securing an apprenticeship. We also secured a 15% increase in the number of pupils attending top third universities, 18% increase in middle third universities and a 33% decrease in bottom third universities.
