Last week the performance tables for schools and colleges in England were released based on the 2018 GCSE, A level and vocational qualification results. We are delighted to report that Alsager was right at the very top! In terms of the progress students make aged 16-18, Alsager 6th Form College was the highest in the area! Our students achieved higher A level and applied learning grades than their individual GCSE grades suggested – our 6th form is ‘adding real value’, more than any other local school or college and this demonstrates the quality of our post 16 provision here at Alsager.
Similarly, in terms of the % of pupils achieving a grade 5 (a ‘strong pass’) or better in GCSE English and maths, Alsager’s 66% was the highest in the whole of Cheshire East and North Staffordshire! We also scored very highly on the Progress 8 figure – putting us in the top 30% of schools nationally when it comes ‘adding value’ and the grades pupils achieved based on their individual SATS scores at the end of primary school. Alsager students achieved roughly a third of a grade higher at GCSE than their ability suggested.
Mr Middlebrook said: “We are of course absolutely delighted that the hard work put in by students and staff, supported by a brilliant parent body, is reflected in these results and our league table position. However, schools are about much more than just exam results and league tables, Alsager is a great school in so many other ways too!”
