We are in top 4% of schools nationally.....

Latest figures put us in top 4% of schools nationally for value added, please click for more.

I just wanted to share with you some really fantastic news that I have just received from Ofsted and the Department of Education. 

RAISEonline (stet) is a summary report that helps schools see how effectively they are performing in terms of the achievement their pupils.  Its particular strength is that it analyses what they call ‘value added’.  In common English this means how we as a school  work with our young people to ensure their success taking into account their prior academic attainment.  This is particularly significant in non- selective schools.

The figures that I have just received put us in the top 4% of schools in the country for value added.  So our cohort of Year 11s who took their GCSEs in the summer achieved results that were significantly above national averages despite the fact that in Year 7 they joined us with SATS results below national averages.  I am reminded again of some of our headline figures from last year.  At least 30% of the cohort gained at least 5A*/A grades, 60% gained at least one A*/ A grade and 100% of the cohort gained at least 5A*/ C grades with 72% including English and maths.

These results are a huge testament to the hard work of the young people and the support they receive from you, the families, and the outstanding teaching and learning that we deliver at The Charter School.
