ALPS Directory

ALPS Directory

We are excited to be part of the recently published Alps A level Directory of Curriculum Excellence in subjects from 2019. The Directory is created using progress data from those schools and colleges who use Alps strategically for school/college curricular improvement across the sector. The Directory can be used to identify providers with consistently strong departments to enhance collaboration between centres and promote the sharing of subject expertise to improve student outcomes.

There are rules for inclusion in the Alps A level Directory of Curriculum Excellence for the ‘consistently strong’ departments which take into account data over 3 years. Within our local area, nine schools/colleges from Dorset and five schools/colleges participated in the Directory. We are very proud of our results, as a school with a 6th form, we in the 10% nationally for outstanding progress (read more here). The subjects that are in the Directory are the following:

  • Business Studies
  • History
  • Psychology
  • Sociology

We have many subjects that also achieve very high results. I am sure these will be added to the Directory, once they have a three year average.
