The Department for Education has published its annual A Level performance tables which place Carmel top when compared to other A Level providers in St Helens and colleges in neighbouring boroughs.
The tables show the amount of progress students make after completing their GCSEs through to finishing their A levels. The national average figure of zero shows the expected progress for students based on their GCSE results. Students at schools and colleges with positive ratings make more progress than expected, whilst a rating below zero shows that students make less progress than expected.
Staff at Carmel College are delighted with the DfE’s findings as the progress score shows an increase on last year’s top of the tables position. It’s also a big ‘pat on the back’ for all the hard work that Carmel’s students put in and the outstanding teaching and support they receive from all the staff at the college every day.
Principal Mike Hill said “At Carmel, we pride ourselves on the outstanding teaching and support we provide to all our students. We are constantly trying to improve the student experience at Carmel and it is really pleasing to report an improvement in our result for 2018/19 which maintains Carmel’s position as one of the best providers of A Levels in the country. We are extremely proud of our ‘Above Average’ progress measure as it shows that all our students perform above their predicted grades no matter where they start from. Students studying BTEC and applied qualifications also make excellent progress at Carmel as shown by last year’s exam results with 100% pass rates for these courses.”
