A-level

These figures are based on students who were entered for at least one A level or AS level. A levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, maths, sciences, languages and humanities. The primary purpose of A levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide.

Type of school or college

Progress score, description and confidence interval (A levels)

These figures tell you how much progress students who studied A levels at this school or college made between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A level studies, compared to similar students across England.

The scores are calculated by comparing the A-level results of students at this school or college with the A level results of students in schools and colleges across England who started with similar results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 4.

A score above zero means students made more progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.

A score below zero means students made less progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.

A negative progress score does not mean students made no progress, or the school or college has failed, rather it means students in this school or college made less progress than other students across England with similar results at the end of key stage 4.

The majority of schools and colleges have progress scores between -2 and +2.

These scores are also known as 'value added' scores.

Confidence intervals

It is difficult to say with certainty how much the progress scores are down to the school or college (which may have scored higher with a different group of students) and how much is down to the students (for example some may have performed well at any school or college). The confidence intervals reflect this uncertainty. If the confidence intervals for two schools or colleges overlap, then we can't say for certain that the two progress scores for these schools or colleges are significantly different.

Generally speaking, the greater the number of students, the smaller the range of the confidence interval. For smaller schools, the confidence interval tends to be larger, since fewer pupils are included, and therefore the score will be more greatly impacted by performance of individual pupils.

A school or college is above average if their progress score is above 0 and the whole confidence interval is above 0. Similarly, a school or college is below average if their progress score is below 0 and the whole confidence interval is below 0.

For more information on statistical confidence, and more detailed technical guidance in general, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide.

How we calculate the progress descriptions ('bandings'):

Progress description School or college is given the description if...
Well above averageScore is 0.3 or higher, and lower confidence interval is higher than 0.
Above average Score is higher than 0 but lower than 0.3, and lower confidence interval is higher than 0.
Close to national average Lower confidence interval is 0 or lower, and the upper confidence interval is 0 or higher.
Below average Score is -0.5 or higher but less than 0, and upper confidence interval is lower than 0.
Well below averageScore is lower than -0.5 and upper confidence interval is lower than 0.

Average result (A levels)

These figures tell you the average grade and average points that students achieved per A level entry. We give a points value to all qualifications so you can compare qualifications of a different level, size and grading system. We base the number of points on the challenge and size of a qualification. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide.

Achieving AAB or higher in at least 2 facilitating subjects

Facilitating A levels are ones that are commonly needed for entry to leading universities. They are: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Geography, History, English Literature and Classical or Modern Languages.

Brackets show the number of students eligible for inclusion in this measure.

Grade and points for a student's best 3 A levels

A best 3 A levels score is calculated for each student by adding together the points in their best 3 A levels, then summed across a school or college, then divided by three to give a best 3 A levels points per entry, and this is also expressed as a grade.

Brackets show the number of students eligible for inclusion in this measure.

Percentage of students completing their main study programme

This measure is based on students who enrolled on, and subsequently completed, a programme of studies that is categorised as mainly A levels. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide.
