Headteacher’s summary of results for 2016
Within the current education system there has been significant and high impact changes for how schools are measured in 2016. As a result, it was vitally important for HLC to continue to build on the strong academic foundations of the last few years. We are all aware that in 2013 and 2015, HLC was awarded a position in the top 100 schools in the country by the Department for Education and we were desperate to maintain that outstanding accolade.
The summer results of 2016 were incredibly pleasing as both the students and the school has yet again achieved well above national expectations in so many areas. Whilst we will always be striving to improve, our results held firm and improved on 2015 results. Although we are waiting for the final national data to be submitted we believe that we may be as high as top 25 in the country for local authority maintained schools.
Areas of exceptional performance in 2016 include our progress measures in English, Mathematics and Science. In addition, the new national measure called progress 8 was significantly above national expectations and we are pleased to see that many of the recognised sub groups achieved above school and DFE targets.
As we all know, data is a small part of the school but please have a look at our results and feel free to contact the school for further information.
