Sixth Form leads in National League Tables
Sexey’s School is celebrating its students’ success once again as the Department for Education’s league tables ranked its Sixth Form as best in Somerset for a state academy last week, based on the all-important Progress* (or ‘Value Added’) score.
As reported here, Sexey’s Sixth Form students achieved particularly strong results, with two students taking up their offers to Cambridge University.
This combined with excellent GCSE results – Sexey’s secured the second highest published Attainment 8** score in the county – means the school maintains its reputation for outstanding academic standards in a tough environment of educational reform.
Commenting, Headteacher Helen Cullen said, “I couldn’t be prouder of our staff and students for achieving such superb results. While league tables only tell a small part of a school’s story, they do provide an indication of the hard work and effort that has gone in, particularly when looking at the Progress scores. I would encourage any high achieving Year 10 and 11 students thinking about their next steps to consider applying to Sexey’s Sixth Form as interviews to join us are now underway.”
* These figures tell you how much progress students who studied A levels made between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A level studies, compared to similar students across England.
**Attainment 8 – The Attainment 8 measure shows the average pupil achievement across eight GCSE subjects including English and Maths.
