Heathfield Sixth Form is officially in the national top ten percent for progress and value added to students’ grades and performance at A Level, according to a highly-respected, independent industry report.
The Advanced Level Performance System (Alps) findings for 2017 results cover nearly three quarters of all A Levels taken across the country in over 1,660 schools and colleges, using official Department for Education data. The College’s A Level results have been qualified as “outstanding” and within the top 10% in the country.
The Alps report adds to the already successful results achieved by Heathfield students this year with 54% of students gaining the top A*-B grades at A Level, and an overall pass rate of 99%.
With over 97% of students gaining access to their firm choice Universities. As traditionally 25% or more of students accept places at Russell Group Universities and a number are offered places at Oxbridge, students at Heathfield are well placed to secure courses and destinations at the highest level whatever their chosen path may be.
Caroline Barlow, Headteacher at Heathfield Community College and Sixth Form said:
“We were very pleased with our exam success this summer in both GCSE and A Level. Our A Level results were extremely successful and we are very proud of what Heathfield students go on to achieve. None of this can be achieved without supportive parents, and exceptionally skilled, well qualified staff both of whom help guide students through the hard work that is required to this level of success. I am thrilled for them all that it has led to these well-deserved outcomes.”
