Roedean in the top 5% nationally for 'value added' in latest Government achievement tables

13/01/2011

Roedean was delighted to learn it is in the top 5% nationally for value added at Key Stage 5, the only school in Brighton and Hove to achieve this.

This year the annual secondary school performance tables include a new measure of value added at Key Stage 5 (the sixth form years). The value added is calculated by comparing the performance at AS and A2 with the grades achieved at GCSE.

The baseline is 1000; an institutional value added score of 1030 means that on average each student achieved the equivalent of one A level grade higher in one subject than the average attained by similar students.

Roedean's score is 1032.3, which means the school is the only one in Brighton and Hove to be placed in the top 5% nationally for value added at Key Stage 5.

Headmistress Mrs Frances King noted, “I am delighted by this achievement, which is testament to the commitment of our dedicated staff and hard-working pupils.”

The top schools in East and West Sussex were St Bedes and Lancing College respectively.
