Performance & Performance Tables
The 2017 students’ examination results saw the student community at Thomas Aveling achieve creditable results at GCSE and significantly improved results at KS5
In Year 13 the school achieved another strong set of A level results, with over 70% of entries achieving A*-B grades. Average points per entry and per student remained at a consistently high level, and as such we rank highly amongst schools nationally for student performance against similar schools. This represents fantastic progress for these hard working students and opens doors to higher education for them. All Year 13 students who applied for university have secured places on a wide range of degree courses, including those at Russell Group universities. ALL grades achieved in Year 13 were pass grades. We are officially a Sixth Form in the top 10% for progress (as measured by ALPs)
At Key Stage Four, against a background of uncertainty of new GCSEs in English and Maths, many students performed very well with grade 9s being achieved in both Maths and English Literature (only the top 2% of students achieve these grades) and nearly 40% of all grades were at least a B/6. All of our highest achieving students chose to stay with us in the 6th form which we are delighhted about. 99% of students achieved five A*-G passes, showing that the school not only delivers an excellent education for the most able, but continues to empower all students to leave school well qualified for the future.
The gap in expected progress in English and Maths between those students in receipt of pupil premium funding compared to those not receiving this grant has reduced dramatically to a point where these students achieve similarly or even better compared to all other students (compared to a gap of over 20% nationally).
