Leyton Sixth Form College has just been given cause to celebrate levels of student achievement which exceed those of all other London sixth form colleges. Ofsted and other bodies make considerable use of the A Level performance system (Alps), which measures the amount of progress students make from the beginning to the end of their various courses. An analysis of how students performed in the summer 2016 exams has just been published and its shows LSC at the top of the college pile for both A level and vocational outcomes.
Principal Kevin Watson commented “Our results have been improving steadily year on year for some time and Ofsted inspectors have confirmed us as being a ‘good’ college on three successive occasions. This evidence of just how well students progress at Leyton, whether highly qualified when they join us or more modestly so, is another massive step forward for us as a college. Leyton is demonstrably helping students to achieve to their potential as successfully as – more successfully than – any other sixth form college in the capital city of our country”.
Last month, some of the students whose results featured in the statistics were also feted by the college at our recent awards event. Students from summer 2016 celebrated their academic and vocational success at the college’s annual Student Awards Ceremony which saw 70 students rewarded for their fantastic exam results in their A Level and Vocational subjects.
