Students at Abbey College, Ramsey are celebrating again this year after securing another excellent set of GCSE results this summer – capping off an excellent year for the College.
Progress, the measure which schools are now ranked, is expected to have significantly improved with 10 per cent more students achieving a positive Progress score compared with last year.
The Progress score compares students’ abilities at the start of secondary school to the grades they achieve at Year 11 and compare this against similar students nationally.
Almost two-thirds (63%) of students achieved a Level 4-9 in both English and Maths, with 41% achieving the higher Level 5-9 – above last year’s national average. Eighty-one per cent of all students at the college achieved a Level 4 or higher in English.
There were also significant improvements in Science, with 57% of students achieving a Level 4-9 in two or more Science subjects – 6%-points higher than last year. The results cap off another excellent year for the college who achieved a Good Ofsted rating in all areas in the Spring term.
Headteacher, Andy Christoforou, said: “We are very proud of the hard work and effort all our students have demonstrated this year which helped them secure another excellent set of results.
“The rate of progress the students made during their time at the college is outstanding, and reflects the consistently good, stretching and challenging teaching at the college. We expect our Progress score will be high again when the league tables are announced in the Autumn term.
“We wish all our students the very best of luck in their futures and look forward to seeing many of them returning to our Sixth Form in September.”
