St Joseph’s College is delighted by its position in the Department for Education’s latest School Performance League tables for A-level. The College has been described as ‘Above Average’ for student progress at A-level and amongst the top 15% of A-level providers in the country for value added.
Mr Sacha Cinnamond, the College’s Vice Principal – Academic, explained, ‘Briefly put, this means that in 2017 our A-level learners achieved over and above what would be expected. The Department for Educations measures how well each student performs against what they had achieved at GCSE, it then calculates how well students have done against students with a similar prior attainment across the country. Our score of 0.21 means that we are one of the top schools in Suffolk for the progress our students make in Sixth Form.’
Following the opening of its £1m state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre in 2016, and with a new Sixth Form management team in place, A-level students at St Joseph’s College delivered a record-breaking set of results last year, with a 16 percentage point increase in the College’s A* to C grades.
