Sixth Form Performance 2017-18

On average our Y13 students gained a Grade C in A Level Subjects.

On average our Y13 students gained a Distinction- in Applied Vocational qualifications.

Our success rate from Year 12 into Year 13 was impressive with 93% of students being retained for a second year into their main study programme (compared with 79% in West Sussex; 81% England).

Our completion rate (96%) for students’ main programmes of study was also well above that of both the county (91%) and national (92%) completion rates.

“A matter of crucial importance to us is the process of enrolling students onto the right programme of courses for them as an individual. The right courses to us means that our students then have greater enjoyment of their studies, greater chance of achieving success providing the first step in successfully establishing future progression and pathways” – Helen Everitt, Deputy Headteacher
