2019 - EXCELLENT A LEVEL RESULTS AT SHELDON

Half of Sheldon’s 168-strong A Level cohort secured grades A*-B in this year’s examinations, with almost one quarter gaining the highest grades A* and A.  In value-added terms, this is one of the school’s strongest showings for many years, with results likely to see it placed in the top quartile nationally.

Of the A Level students, 92% secured at least three passes, 98% two and 100% one – an impressive achievement.  Louis Austin and Annabelle Moore gained 4 A*/A grades with Samir Jiwa achieving straight A*s in his three A Levels.  In all, 36 students gained at least two A*/A grades and this excludes those studying Level 3 vocational qualifications, of which an excellent 18 out of 26 achieved distinction or merit.

Results came in above predictions and above challenging individual targets.  In addition to two Oxbridge students, we have many heading to prestigious universities and higher level apprenticeships, but as a fully inclusive sixth form, we are equally pleased by the showing of students right across the ability spectrum.  Those making the most progress from GCSE and ending with tremendous A Levels include: Jasmine Hopkins, Oliver Cosgrove, Katy Lakeland, Holly Williams, William Harris, Alexandra Purbrick, Kit Stainthorpe, Lewis Morrissey and Lawrence Baddeley-Chappell, all of which has contributed to the excellent overall value-added figure.

 

 

DfE PERFORMANCE MEASURES 

From January 2017 schools have been required to report specific statistics once they have been finalised. For examinations in 2018 they were as follows:

Key Stage 4

Progress 8 score     -0.13

Attainment 8 score   49.9

Percentage of pupils who achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and maths at the end of key stage 4 = 51% and the percentage achieving a standard pass (grade 4 and above) = 72.2%

Percentage of pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) = 30.3%, calculated using students who have scored grades 5 and above in English, maths, a modern foreign language, history or geography, and two grade 5s or above within science (including computer science).

Percentage of students staying in education or going into employment after key stage 4 (pupil destinations) = 98.6% in 2017. This figure will be updated when the data becomes available. 


Key Stage 5

The progress students in your college have made compared with students

across the country                                                                                                             +0.1
