Students at the school achieved the best ever results in the history of the school in summer examinations 2017. We are very proud of their achievements, especially as students at A Level and GCSE faced tougher exams and a longer, harder curriculum than before. These results are a testimony to the hard work of students and staff alike.

Here are some of the headlines:

A Level:

Overall pass rate 100% National Average 97%

% of entries achieving A*/A 31% National Average 26%

% of entries achieving *A/A/B 55.3% National Average 53.1%

Value Added +0.11

(Value Added is a measure of the attainment of students in the school in all their exams compared to the attainment of students with the same ability, nationally. The school’s positive value added score indicates that our students attained more highly than students with the same ability in other schools nationally and so made more progress than expected.)

 

GCSE:

71% of students achieved 5 or more standard passes including in English and Maths

74% achieved standard passes in both English and Maths (grade 4 or above)

55% achieved strong passes in both English and Maths (grade 5 or above)

31% achieved a grade 7 or above in English

27% achieved a grade 7 or above in Maths

Progress 8 score for the school: +0.14

(Progress 8 is a measure of the attainment of students in the school in 8 different subjects compared to the attainment of students with the same ability, nationally. The school’s positive Progress 8 score indicates that our students attained more highly than students with the same ability in other schools nationally and so made more progress than expected.)

Students classified as being of high, medium and low ability ALL made more progress than expected nationally

Progress 8 score in English: +0.37 (this means that students attained over one third of a grade higher in English at this school than the same ability students did in other schools nationally and so made significantly more progress than expected)

Progress 8 score in Maths: +0.44 (this means that students attained nearly half a grade higher in Maths at this school than the same ability students did in other schools nationally and so made significantly more progress than expected)

The results show that LSA is the top performing school in this area, is one of the top performing schools in Lancashire and has performed at least as well as, if not better than, many schools designated as “outstanding”.
