Accountability Measures

16-19 Accountability Measures

The government have reformed how schools and colleges are measured in order to set higher expectations, and to make the system fairer, more ambitious, and more transparent.

These measures are:

  • Progress
  • Attainment
  • English and maths (for students who do not have a GCSE in these subjects at A*-C)
  • Retention
  • Destinations

Please see the information below for further details on each measure and how successful SCHA VI Form are against each measure.

Progress and Attainment:

This measure uses value added progress to show how well students have progressed when compared with students with the same prior attainment. The measure for attainment shows the average grade that students attain across the academy in their A level and BTEC level 3 studies.

The average grade for the 2020/21 year 13 leavers cohort studying and completing their A levels was B+. This is an increase from an average grade of a B- in 2020. In the year ending 2021 the average grade for students studying BTEC vocational qualifications was Distinction+. This is an increase from an average grade of Merit+ in 2020.

English and maths

This measure shows the progress of students in English and maths where they did not achieve at least a grade 4 at GCSE by the end of key stage 4.

For the academic year 2020/21 the number of students across year 12 and 13 who entered the Vi form without a grade 4 in English Language was 1. That student has now achieved the minimum requirement of a 4 in their resit.

For the academic year 2020/21 the number of students across year 12 and 13 who entered the Vi Form without a grade 4 in Mathematics was 5. All of these students have subsequently secured at least a Grade 4 in their resits.

Retention

This measure shows the proportion of students who are retained to the end of their main course of study within their study programme at a provider.

The data below was validated for the 2021 cohort
For the 2020/21 (year 13) leavers – 87 students were retained on a range of A level and BTEC courses. The overall pass rate for those students retained on courses was 100%. A further break down will be added to this document when the data is released in March 2022.

For the academic year 2020/21 Year 12 cohort, 91% of students progressed from Year 12 into Year 13. Of the 8 students that did not progress to year 13, 4 are resitting year 12 with the other 4 all moving onto positive destinations. 

The data for the 2020/21 leaver’s cohort will be validated in March 2022, but for the academies internal calculations please see below:

The following is the latest validated data from the government website and breaks these destinations down for the 2016/17 cohort – This data is not initial destinations but re checked after a year to see who has stayed in their initial destination, which is why we do not have destinations data form the Government for more recent cohorts.

Summary

In 2019, our Progress score for the Sixth Form was +0.29 which was the second best in Northamptonshire. In the two years since, our progress score has increased to 0.4, significantly above national average. Over the past academic year, student outcomes have improved; the average grade for students taking our academic qualifications rose to a B+ from a B- in 2020. Similarly, our students, on average, achieved a Distinction in their vocational qualifications compared to a Merit+ in 2020.

Sir Christopher Hatton is ranked number 1 in Northamptonshire for KS4 outcomes and we are delighted that our KS5 results mirror that success and continue to improve year on year. We are proud that 90% of our students have gone on to study at university with a quarter of those leaving us securing a place at a Russell Group university.
