With widely reported skills shortages in both the engineering and construction sectors, the UTC’s aim is to train confident, highly competent individuals to fill the roles of the future and we’re delighted that the outcome of our summer results have led to some very positive student destinations data:
|WUTC Sixth Form||36.5%|
|Another Sixth Form||6.3%|
*Destinations Review - September 2019
We are pleased to announce that our GCSE performance this year showed great improvement, in many areas, compare to last year.
Here are some of the key improvement areas:
NB: The Progress 8 measure is not designed for UTC’s as recognised by the government in their footnote of the performance tables.
The majority of the 36 students in Year 13 studied Construction and Engineering in a combination of Diploma (equivalent to 2 A levels) or the Extended (equivalent to 3 A levels) the average grade for these was a Merit+. NOTE: This is the first year where these BTECs had an examinable unit.
98% of BTEC entries achieved a Pass of better
26% of these entries achieved a Distinction or Distinction*
Students studying three A Levels achieved an average grade of a D.
Significant improvements were seen in all of our Academic A Levels:
|Grade Average||Point Score|
Students studying the school's specialisms in the technical category performed above national norms, scoring 29.8 per qualification (28.4 nationally). These technical qualifications countned for 80% of all entries. Achievement in the supporting A Level qualifications (21.9) was inline with UTCs nationally (22.9)
Our GCSE retake results for Post 16 students are significantly above National in both English and Maths.
The Department for Education publish data on school performance each year.
