Exam Approach

At King Edward's we value depth of study and therefore we do not enter students early for subjects or encourage the constant re-sitting of examinations through the modular system.  We also offer a broad academic curriculum geared up to preparation for University entrance.  This means that we do not worry about artificially ramping up our point scores in league tables by putting children through an additional range of vocational qualifications.  Instead we concentrate mainly on academic GCSEs and on an academic A Level curriculum aimed at getting our children the best possible educational grounding. Most importantly we do not overload them so that they therefore have the space and time to develop and flourish through our enrichment offer to become well rounded individuals who are also academically well grounded.

 

Our goal is therefore success on our own terms; for our own pupils, and for their futures: that is what is really important to us. It just so happens that as a by product of this we are consistently ranked as one of the top three schools in the Wolds and North East Lincolnshire and also as one of the top 200 state schools in the country: which is nice.

GCSE Progress 8 Value Added for Grammar Schools

 

 

Value Added Results Show Depth of Pupils' Success

The publication of the Government’s League Tables for Summer 2016 and also the publication of our own external data provided by Durham University shows the real depth of our pupils' success this summer.  On the left you can see the value added charts for both GCSE and for A Level which although complicated tell an important story about the impact that our work is having on individuals.

 

At GCSE our value added was 0.28 where 0 is the national norm.  A score of 0.25 means that on average pupils have made a quarter of a grade improvement per subject and at 0.5 that on average pupils have made half a grade improvement in each of their subjects. To put this in context of the 5,500 secondary schools in the country only 7 got a score of 1 [i.e. a full grade improvement per subject] and less than 150 schools got 0.5 or above.  In terms of Grammar schools 85 got 0.25 or above: King Edward's was also in the top 50 Coeducational Grammar Schools in the country for its Progress 8 measure.   You can see the value added tables compared to the national results in the table to the left.

 

At A Level we work closely with Durham University who provide a robust analysis of our data each year and it was particularly heartening to see the our overall value added across the Sixth Form as a whole was exceptionally high.   Again what this shows is that on average the vast majority of pupils achieved or exceeded their targets.

 

In both local and national terms this once again confirms the school's status as one of the leading Grammar schools in the country and it was particularly interesting to see that at GCSE value added only a few points split the top three performers in the Wolds.
