Who are England’s top sixth form subject performers?
Welcome to the fifth year of this headline analysis which celebrates sixth form excellence. Last year this popular summary 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.
What does this data actually mean?
Our Lady’s Abingdon was number 1 for Geography in 2019. That means they were the number 1 centre (valued added) of all centres that taught A-level Geography in England – a fantastic achievement. For subjects with larger numbers of entries the top 25/30 institutions are listed. For smaller subjects it may be proportionally less based on the cohort size. Subjects with smaller entry volumes are excluded.
