Sixth form colleges – a great educational success story
A recent academic survey carried out by the London Economics research organisation demonstrates that: “Sixth Form Colleges help their students to achieve better academic exam results than all other non-selective providers in the state sector”. The tables below show the performance tables published by the Department of Education, which are based on the A level results of 2015. They show that Godalming College continues to perform well when compared to other non-selective schools and colleges in the country, in the top 10% for points per entry and in the top 5% for value added. This puts Godalming College in the top ten best performing colleges in the country, and the best in Surrey and Hampshire.
