Our 2015 exam results continue to be impressive, more so that this year we ceased to be selective in entering students for exams but allowed all who were working to their potential to sit the exam. Despite this change, our A level results still improved, many subjects still achieved a 100% pass rate and most individual students reached their full potential in the examinations they sat.

 

Of particular note are:

  • Farzana Huysman who at A level scored Chemistry A* (94%), Maths A* (99%), Further Maths A* (89%), Physics A* (99%), French A (87%) and has progressed to Cambridge University to study Mechanical Engineering
  • Gitau Wambugu who at A level scored Biology A, Chemistry A* and Physics A and has entry to St George’s, London to study Medicine after his gap year
  • Dheer Karia who at IGCSE scored A* x8 and A x1.
  • A level Media taught by Mr Omotto with grades A* x2, A x2, B x1
  • A level Chemistry taught by Ms Richardson with 75% of the class scoring A*


There are also many others who performed very well by making similar progress but from a lower base. Congratulations to our candidates and teachers who worked so hard, night and day.

In order to monitor a pupil’s progress towards reaching their potential, it is necessary to first quantify their potential in that particular area. To do this, Greensteds has registered all Year 7 to Year 13 pupils with the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) based in Durham University, England. We provide CEM with relevant data such as age, gender and past academic performance and give the students an online Computer Adaptive Baseline Test. Using this information, CEM provides reliable target minimum grades for the progression of a 50th percentile or average student.
 
We use this data to track each individual pupil’s progress towards their targets and to put in place interventions where the data suggests it necessary. At the end of a course, the data also provides us with a means to quantify a pupil’s ‘value added’ which we believe is more relevant than percentage pass rates because it takes into account ability and background when measuring achievement in an exam. The CEM analysis is not free but we feel it is an important step forward as we constantly strive to improve the service we provide to our young people and follow best practice worldwide.
