January’s publication of the validated School Performance Tables for 2016 confirms Sir William Robertson Academy’s status as one of the best performing non selective schools in the county and the region. Against the government’s new headline measure of Progress 8, the school achieved a positive score of +0.16 which places the school in the top 40% of schools nationally. The average for Lincolnshire schools is -0.11 which is below the national average for England. The school outperformed the Lincolnshire and National Average on the government’s other new measure – Attainment 8 – and also in terms of the percentage of students achieving the English Baccalaureate, which indicates how many pupils get a grade C or above in the crucial core academic subjects.
The performance within the Sixth Form was extremely strong with 100% of students staying in education or employment after leaving Sir William Robertson – which compares to only 88% nationally and 89% in Lincolnshire.
Mark Guest, Headteacher commented: "This is a fantastic accolade which affirms just how well our Post-16 provision prepares our students for life and success after school.’ There were strong A Level results across a broad range of subjects which led 68% of students to go on to Higher Education compared to only 48% nationally and 49% in Lincolnshire. In addition, the average grade achieved in Vocational Qualifications was a Distinction Star – the highest grade that can be awarded."
