Nationally, female students continue to out-perform male students at almost every stage of education. Once again, males at the College are managing to close the A Level achievement gap, having reduced it to just 0.1% this year. This represents a significant improvement as the difference in achievement at Key Stage 4 (GCSE) is over 10%. This is testament to the supportive environment of the College and the emphasis on an individual approach.
Principal, Helen Pegg, commented,
“Over the past few years we have developed our systems to support individual students. Every student really does matter to us. In particular, male students face many challenges and we recognise the need to adapt our approach to meet their individual circumstances and needs.”
