League tables and student progress

Best performing sixth form over three years

Our track record of outstanding student progress for A Levels and advanced vocational courses is the best and most consistent in Somerset across the last three years.  For the third year in a row, the Government league tables rank Strode College as the first or second best school or college in Somerset for student progress at advanced level. (2013-2015 league tables, student progress measured by value-added scores).

Outstanding student progress

Our students consistently gain excellent results and high grades.  What is more important is the fact that they make such outstanding progress and achieve beyond expectations.

Student progress is measured by ‘value-added’ scores in the league tables.  This shows the difference between the grades a student is expected to achieve at advanced level, based on their GCSE results, and what they actually achieve after two years studying with us.

Student progress is the best measure of the positive difference made to students’ results by the quality of teaching and support they receive.
