Prior Park College Recognised for Pupil Progress

Prior Park College has been graded in the top 22% of Schools and Colleges in England for pupil progress, in the Department for Education performance table released today.

The Department for Education pupil progress figures, also known as ‘’valued added’ scores, reveal how much progress A Level students make between the end of Key Stage 4 and the end of their A Levels studies.  The scores are calculated by comparing the A Level results of students at Prior Park College with the A Level results of students in Schools and Colleges across England who started with similar results at the end of Key Stage 4.

Prior Park College was graded a progress score of 0.21 based on the 98 students who sat at least one A Level in 2018.

Headmaster, Mr James Murphy-O’Connor said, “I am delighted that Prior Park has been placed so high in the Value Added league table, published this week by the Department for Education. We see this Value Added league table as the truest indicator of the quality of a school. I am not surprised that the hard work of our students, supported by the dedicated and inspiration of my Teaching staff, results in such excellent progress.”
