The 2017 performance tables show that students at St Peter's School Sixth Form make great progress in both A level and Vocational subjects
In August 2016, when our Post 16 students received their A level results, we were very proud of their achievements. Our A*-C rate had increased to 66%, with subjects such as English Language, Performing Arts, ICT, Sports Studies and PE achieving 100% A*-C. 100% of students went on to either University/Further Education or work and Apprenticeships. Those students who went onto University, went to prestigious universities such as Cambridge, Sheffield, Exeter and Newcastle to study subjects such as Engineering, Physics, Ecology and Psychology.
The Performance Table data, which was released last week, has confirmed just how well our students have done. Our Value Added for A level subjects, a measure which demonstrates the amount of progress made from GCSE to the end of Year 13, has improved significantly; in 2015, it was -0.13 which was below the National Average. In 2016, the Value Added is now standing at -0.05 meaning that St Peter’s Sixth Form has achieved National Standards. Our Vocational Value Added has always been impressive and continues to be so at +0.62, which puts us in the top 32% of schools in England as being significantly above the National Average. Students who have achieved A*-B in facilitating subjects (English Literature, Humanities, Science and maths) has also increased to 13%, which is the best it has ever been. This is fantastic news for St Peter’s Sixth Form.
