League Tables

According to The Times league tables, which were released in the summer of 2022, Cardinal Newman College was placed as the Highest Performing College in the North West and the Second Highest nationally.

The league tables, which were based on the results achieved by our students in summer 2022, prove that once again Cardinal Newman is the College of choice for post 16.

Cardinal Newman College76.9
Carmel College63.6
Chichester College61.9
Scarborough Sixth Form College55.8
Luton Sixth Form College48.8

Students at Newman not only achieve outstanding grades, but also make exceptional progress during their time with us. Value Added is arguably the most important measure as this compares the GCSE scores with A-Level scores and measures the distance travelled during a student’s time at sixth form. On this measure, we are placed as the fourth highest nationally.

We are extremely proud of all of the achievements shown by these measures, as it highlights that our students make the best progress, so no matter what grades a student arrives with, they will flourish at Cardinal Newman.
