These are very pleasing results for our students, parents and the school, with a number of students gaining top grades across the board. Our A Level results are highly competitive when compared to other schools in the local area. The students fully deserve their success, which was down to their hard work and the very positive and productive partnership between staff, students and their families.

ALPS (A Level Performance System) Results 2017

Students at Edgbarrow Sixth Form have been very successful again this year, with a record number of students securing places at Oxbridge, at highly-selective universities and with leading local employers in a highly competitive market. 64% of all grades were A* - B or equivalent, with 44% of all grades being A* - A or equivalent and almost all vocational grades being Distinction or better. Although this is a slight dip from our best-ever results last year, we are happy that this is broadly in line with achievement in previous years, especially as this cohort was the first to tackle the new, more rigorous A Levels. To maintain standards in the face of change and increasing difficulty is hard, and students have done both themselves and us proud, as always. This success is thanks to a wonderful partnership between students, parents/carers, teachers and support staff, and a lot of hard work from everyone concerned. We are very proud of our students and of their many achievements in and out of school.

What is ALPS? Results of GCSEs taken in Year 11 give an indication of the point score that can be expected to be achieved when the student goes on to take AS and A Levels 1 and/or 2 years later. For each individual student, the ‘Value Added’ score is a calculation, devised by a team at Greenhead College in Huddersfield and now used and recognised nationally, which is based on the difference between the actual point score and the predicted point score.
