Who are England’s top sixth form subject performers?
Welcome to the fourth year of our annual research analysis – which celebrates sixth form excellence. Last year this popular analysis was viewed over 200,000 times.
There is a variety of information available concerning over-all institutional performance. This is the only national comparative analysis at subject level, which considers student progress in preference to student outcomes. It seeks to shine a light on examples of excellence and celebrate what is often invisible (and uncelebrated) in headline performance table measures.
Each year we look at a different perspective. For this year’s analysis, we considered academic (school sixth-forms and sixth form colleges) and vocational (all providers) performance in 2016.
What does this data actually mean?
Holy Family Catholic School, Waltham Forest was number 1 for Physics in 2016. That means they were the number 1 centre (valued added) of all centres that taught A-level Physics in England- a fantastic achievement.
