TOP MARKS for HCC's 16-18 year-old students! Highest scores in the country!
Posted 28th March 2012
Data just released shows that HCC’s sixth form students (South Hackney Sixth) were top in the country for ‘value added’ scores last year, in a respected national survey.
Hackney Community College’s 16-18 year old Level 3 students who took A level and BTEC qualifications last year achieved the highest score possible. Being marked Grade 1 overall means that no other school or college in the country which participates in the Advanced Level Performance System (ALPS) had a higher score.
‘Value added’ calculated on the ALPS system measures the progress made by students through their time at college. It compares their GCSE scores when students start college, with their final BTEC or A level results.
Furthermore, the following subjects also scored a grade 1:
- Chemistry, Maths and Turkish A level
- BTEC Certificate in Health and Care
- BTEC Diploma in Interactive Media.
At Hackney Community College, BTECs overall were rated outstanding for added value.
1,254 schools and colleges participated in the ALPS scheme. You can find out more about ALPS here
