Research shows that progress made at Grantham College is better than at local colleges and sixth forms.
The Department for Education has released information which shows that A Level students make better progress at Grantham College than all other Lincolnshire-based Colleges and 4 out of 6 local sixth forms. National school comparison data, available online, demonstrates the progress made by A Level students at Grantham College outperforms local sixth-forms including the Priory Ruskin Academy, KGGS, St. George’s in Sleaford and Sir William Robertson Academy in Welbourn as well as 3 local colleges. The college also outperforms all other local colleges on the vocational progress measure.
Paul Deane, Principal of Grantham College comments: “We are all about students fulfilling their potential and getting the best grades they can. It is clear from this data that students have a better chance of fulfilling their potential here at Grantham College. These value added progress measures take into account the GCSE grades students start with and Grantham College adds more value than all other local colleges and many local sixth forms.”
Current A Level student, Naryce Christie, believes that it is the support offered by lecturers which helps students realise their ambitions and do well at the College. “You are treated like an adult at college and you feel like you’re here to learn rather than just passing an exam. I made the right decision in coming to Grantham College over a local sixth form” says Naryce.
