A Level results 2022 (DfE Performance Tables 16-18)

English and Maths

These scores show how much progress students at this school or college made in English and maths qualifications such as GCSE re-takes, between the end of key stage 4 and the end of the 16 to 18 phase of education.


A positive score means that, on average, students got higher grades at 16 to 18 than at key stage 4. A negative score means that, on average, students got lower grades than at key stage 4. Students are included in these measures if they did not achieve a grade 4 or higher in their GCSE or equivalent by the end of key stage 4 in that subject.


or further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide

Disadvantaged students

Disadvantaged students are those who attract pupil premium funding at the end of key stage 4, meaning students claiming free school meals at any point in the previous 6 years, students in care, and those who left care through adoption or another formal route. The performance of disadvantaged students is compared with the local authority and the England average for ‘other’, where other means non – disadvantaged students.

You can compare the students’ results with performance at state-funded schools and colleges at local authority and national level.
