Students in the South West perform better at SGS

Staff at SGS College are delighted with the results of the recently published Progress Measures 2018, which confirms that students studying A-levels at SGS College perform better than they would at other similar colleges in the South West.

When compared to other schools and colleges in the region, SGS College’s A-level value added is one of the best in the local area with an above average score of 0.10%, higher than both St Brendan’s and City of Bristol. Value added shows the average distance travelled by learners between Key Stage 4 (GCSE) and Key Stage 5 - a positive score demonstrates progress.

Over the past couple of years, the College's A-levels provision has seen positive growth in its value added score; meaning that, on average, a student studying for an A-level achieves far better at SGS than expected.

Principal at SGS College, Sara-Jane Watkins, comments:

“Staff at the college are thrilled with the recent findings. We pride ourselves on delivering a well-rounded education where students build their skills, confidence and resilience whilst securing excellent A-level grades.

“Staff at SGS know their students very well and set challenging targets to ensure they stay motivated and achieve as well as they do.”
