Last week, the Department for Education released their 2018 league tables, which confirm the results from August last year and allows schools to compare their performance with those of other schools. I am delighted to share with you that our sixth form was the only sixth form in Peterborough where students made ‘well above average’ progress in their A levels.
The table places Queen Katharine Academy amongst the top 0.5% of schools in the UK for progress at A Level and means we currently now rank 17th out of 3689 sixth forms and colleges in the country for this measure. This is a phenomenal achievement and one which we should all be considerably proud of.
At GCSE Level, schools are now ranked using a figure called Progress 8. Progress 8 measures a student's progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 across eight key subjects. Our progress 8 score showed the largest improvement across the city.
Although there is still much work to be done in this area, the results show a rise of almost half a grade, which is a fantastic achievement. We are delighted that the work we have done to improve leadership, behaviour and teaching is having a significant impact on helping our students to achieve their best at this level.
Both these sets of results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff and the excellent support we receive from our parents. They are a true reflection of what can be achieved here at Queen Katharine Academy.
We look forward to continuing to improve on these results over the next few years and to seeing what our students can achieve with our support and guidance.
