Enfield Schools raise standards with higher grades at A Level

Published Tuesday, 18 August 2015

Once again ‘A’ level students in Enfield schools achieved very good results which are in line with the national average.

A Level

This year 97.9% of the A Levels entered by Enfield school students resulted in a pass which is in line with the national average.

Over half of all entrants gained A*- B grades and 75% have achieved A*- C

Some schools did exceptionally well:

Edmonton County and Enfield County got 100% passes with raised grades.

Chace Community, Kingsmead Academy, Lea Valley High, Nightingale Academy, Oasis Hadley and St Anne’s have all improved on their results from last year

Retaining their pass rates, Enfield County with 100% pass rate for a second year improved grades of A*-B at 52%; and Southgate with 99.70% passes improved with A* - B grades of 56%.

Chace Community students did particularly well with 41% achieving A*-B grades at A level and they have achieved a huge15% increase in their pass rate at AS level.

Nightingale Academy has leapt up with an 8.7% improvement in passes.

Overall the measure of high grades known as points per entry has risen to 221.5 compared with 215.7 last year.

Cllr Ayfer Orhan, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Children’s Services & Protection, said, “This year students have achieved higher grades in their chosen subjects and this reflects their hard work and ambition to succeed.

“Teachers also work extremely hard to ensure that all students fulfil their potential for A Levels and other post 16 examinations all of which will help young people in the next stage of their education. Congratulations to all of them.”

Students may also have followed other courses of study and these will be published in the Achievement and Attainment Tables in late January 2016.

In Enfield a range of courses of study were followed. These included ‘A’ Level and AS Levels; BTEC courses and Diploma courses in which Enfield students are achieving great success. The range of study programmes continues to increase in line with the ‘Raising of the Participation Age’ agenda. 

A total of 4,238 post 16 pupils studied in Enfield schools this year, yet another rise in the number of students staying in Enfield (the highest figure to-date).

All results are provisional and based on headline figures sent by schools to the Council.
