Ashuit Khanna and Vlad Bunys IMG 8812 UpUxbridge College is the best college, offering a full A Level programme, in London for ‘Value Added’ at A Level - as well as being one of the best colleges in the UK, according to new Government figures.

‘Value Added’ is a measure of how much improvement students make compared to their peers nationally. Sometimes described as ‘distance travelled’, Value Added reflects how much ‘value’ a school or college adds to its students, by comparing students’ achievement levels before they begin their A Levels to their performance when they finish. The Department for Education (DfE) figures show that 16-18 year olds taking A Levels are making better progress at Uxbridge College than at any other Sixth Form in Hillingdon, as well as any Sixth Form or Further Education college in the capital as a whole.

The figures for 2017 measure student improvement - which produces what are known as ‘Value Added’ scores.

The statistics rank the progress of students at all A Level providers including Colleges, school sixth forms and independent schools.

Amanda Washbrook, Head of Uxbridge College Sixth Form Centre, said: “It’s really important to us that we help every student achieve the very best they can while they are here with us, whether they achieved Cs or A*s at GCSE. Increasingly, measures of progress such as the A Level Value Added score are viewed as the best indicator of how well a school or college is doing for its students. It’s good to see that the Department for Education data that has just been published reflects the hard work of all of my staff and the excellent progress our A Level students are making.”

Value Added scores - also known as progress scores - are the outcome of calculations using a statistical formula. The scores are calculated by comparing the A Level results of students at a given school or 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.
