A Level Results 2016
In the 6th form, students’ results maintained the excellent standards we have achieved in previous years. This year, our A-level students:
- made better progress than most students nationally;
- achieved significantly more top grades than in 2015 (A* to B attainment increased by ten percentage points).
There were successes in many subjects, with particularly outstanding performance in maths, physics, psychology and travel. Everyone at Hove Park School was thrilled that the superb accomplishments of our A Level students enabled them to progress to their chosen higher education courses and jobs.
The excellent results enabled students to progress to their chosen higher education courses and jobs with an increased percentage going on to university this year. We were also very proud of the success of students in the 6th form for whom we have received pupil premium funding to support economic disadvantage. The outcomes for these students were excellent and there were no gaps in achievement between them and other students.
It is clear that there continue to be many strengths in the school. Commenting on the results, Head Teacher, Rob Reed, said: “Some of the results achieved by our students are stunning. I feel very proud to be associated with them. I am also pleased that in so many areas the school has sustained strong outcomes. This is a strong platform from which we can make further improvement.”
