From the returns received so far, 98.2% of the A Levels entered resulted in a pass, which is an improvement on last year’s pass rate of 97.9% and above this year’s national average. Nationally there has been a small decline in the A* - C pass rate, but in Enfield’s schools 76% of subjects were graded A* - C, which is 2% up on last year’s result. Considerable improvements were made by Bishop Stopford’s, Broomfield, Highlands, Oasis Academy Hadley and Winchmore Schools. Enfield Council Leader, Doug Taylor, said “These are excellent results which reflect the hard work and determination of our young people and their teachers. They build on the great results achieved last year and reflect the year-on-year improvements we are seeing in our schools. Well done to all the students and their teachers.” All results are provisional and based on headline figures sent by schools to the Council.
They represent the A levels achieved at the end of two years study. Students may also have followed other courses of study and these will be published in the Achievement and Attainment Tables in late January 2015.
In Enfield students took a range of courses. These included ‘A’ Level and AS Levels; BTEC courses and Diploma courses. The range of programmes studied continues to increase in line with the ‘Raising of the Participation Age’ agenda. A total of 4086 post 16 pupils studied in Enfield schools this year, more than ever before.
The 2014 performance tables include information on average points per entry and average points per student. The average points per entry included here are based on the following point scores for ‘A’ level;
An average point score of 200 would represent an average of between grades C and D. 2013 points per entry taken from the 2013 Achievement and Attainment Tables. 2013 Pass rate taken from the AAT publication file of passes at grades A*-E. 2013 information is for A level only and does not include any other results (such as AS, BTEC, Vocational Double Awards). 2013 results for Nightingale Academy were suppressed due to the numbers taking the exams being relatively small.
