In 2017 our fantastic students achieved a 99.2% pass rate, almost a third of all A level grades were awarded at either A* or A and nearly 85% of A2 courses were graded A* to C - this has been our most successful year ever!
Not only this, Farnborough’s achievements, when looking at the Value Added (VA) figures in relation to all local colleges show that our students make the most 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 1515 out of 6060 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.
Looking at it another way, if the same cohort of students had taken their A levels at e.g. College H (see below) 1879 A level grades would have been lower than were achieved at Farnborough.
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 found here.
