Congratulations to our Year 11 and Year 13 students, this year’s results have revealed some outstanding achievements for RSA Academy students. Our Academy community should be very proud of the hard work and commitment that these students have put in and their achievements.
KS4 (Year 11)
In 2017*, 51% of students achieved a standard pass in English and mathematics, an increase of 14% on the previous year. 29% of students achieved a strong pass in English and mathematics. There was also an increase in the proportion of students entering the English Baccalaureate (now at 43%, 15% in 2016) and achieving a strong pass in the measure (now at 20%, 5% in 2016). The 2017 cohort achieved a Progress 8 score of -0.44, an increase of 0.43 on 2016. The average Attainment 8 score per pupil also increased, from 44.2 to 45.1. Based on internal tracking and careers interviews, 94% of the 2017 cohort have chosen to go onto further education, employment or training. This statistic will be validated in future performance table releases.
In 2017*, outcomes for students completing an academic pathway of study averaged a C grade, with an average point score of 28.9, largely in line with 2016 performance. The academic value-added score was -0.45. Students studying applied general vocational subjects averaged a grade of distinction, an increase from merit+ in 2016, with the average point score in turn increasing from 29.9 in 2016 to 35.2 in 2017.

This statistic will be validated in future performance table releases.
