“Our most important responsibility is to unlock every pupil’s academic potential”

A Levels 2021

Despite the unprecedented challenges faced by students this year, Sutton Valence School was delighted to announce another excellent set of A Level results. In 2021, 72% of all grades achieved by our students were A* to B, with a flawless pass rate of 100%. Over one in four of the 2021 cohort of students achieved three or more A* and A grades.

Once again, 100% of our students who completed the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) passed, with 81% achieving A* to A grades. Recognised by universities as providing students with essential skills, the EPQ is a self-motivated project that requires detailed planning and independent research and aids students to stand out in the UCAS application process.

GCSE 2021

This year's GCSE candidates also faced an incredible number of challenges, but despite this, Sutton Valence Fifth Form pupils once more celebrated a superb set of results. With over 51% of GCSE's graded 9 to 7, the percentage of coveted grades 8 and 9 gained by pupils at the School stood at 31%.

Of the 88 pupils in the year group, 31% of this talented cohort achieved four or more grades 8 or 9 (formerly A* grade), with five students each gaining nine or more A* equivalent grades across a wide range of subjects.

Value Added

On average, our students will gain results at A Level that out-perform their predicted grade on entry to the School by 0.5 of a grade.  As measured by Durham University Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring, which has a thirty year history of computing these statistics.  

Our flexible curriculum gives students in the early years the opportunity to experience a broad range of academic subjects. This helps them to make informed choices when they come to make decisions about GCSE courses.  Class sizes are small, with an overall student:staff ratio of 9:1, which enables our students to benefit from the close guidance and individual attention of their teachers.
