College in top 5%

06 October 2014

We are in the top 5% of all schools and colleges nationwide, and the best college in the Thames Valley, Hampshire and Surrey according to recent Contextual Value-Added (CVA) league tables published by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).

The college’s score of 1039.4, a 21-point increase on last year, means that our average student will earn well over a full A Level grade higher than might be expected from their achievements in earlier qualifications.

CVA compares 16-19 year olds’ actual grades for Level 3 with their expected Level 3 grades. Level 3 qualifications include A Levels and BTEC National Diplomas.

A student’s expected grade is based mainly on their Level 2 achievements – including GCSEs and BTEC First Diplomas.

James Taylor, the college’s Director of Quality & Standards, said:

“This is a fantastic achievement for the college and is the proof of the hard work that all our staff and students have put in over the last year.

“These results show that coming to Bracknell & Wokingham College gives its students the chance not only to match, but clearly surpass the expectations they arrive here with.”

Come to our next Open event on 6 February, from 10am-3pm, to find out how to join us in September 2010.
