Exam results

In 2018, our fantastic students achieved a 99.1% pass rate!  Almost a third of all A level grades were awarded at either A* or A, way above the national average, with 82.3% of A level taught courses graded A* to C.  Our A level and vocational results put us in the top 10% of schools and colleges nationally.


Value Added (for 2018)

Farnborough’s achievements, when looking at the Value Added (VA) figures, show that our students make outstanding progress from their starting point (the VA measurement analyses a student’s progress from their achievements at GCSE to their final A level grades). 

The VA figures show that 1011 out of 4395 A levels were graded one grade higher when taken at the College than if they had been taken at a college or school sixth form achieving the national average.

Another way of looking at this is to say that students in average colleges who are working at the top of a grade would have achieved the next grade higher at Farnborough - for example, a student in another college working at a B+, would have achieved an A if they had come to us. 

We are delighted that the hard work of our students and teachers has been recognised in the Department for Education’s A level performance measures.  Post-16 educational institutions are now assessed by five distinct measures; progress, attainment, retention, English and maths as well as destinations.  These new accountability headline measures aim to give a full picture of how colleges are performing, taking account of a variety of factors.  A summary of the DfE performance measures can be seen below:
