League Tables

The Government released the official national league tables in January 2020, which measure the performance of Schools and Colleges across the country. Staff and students are celebrating as these latest tables show that Cardinal Newman is consistently placed amongst the top 10 Sixth Form Colleges nationally.

Post 16 educational institutions are now assessed by five distinct measures; progress, attainment, retention, English and Maths as well as destinations. These new accountability headline measures aim to give a full picture of how Colleges are performing, taking account of a variety of factors.

The latest league tables show that Cardinal Newman College is the Top Performing Sixth Form College in the North West based on A-Level Progress according to the 2020 Department for Education.

These achievements show that students not only achieve high grades, leaving Cardinal Newman with a great A-Level point score, but that they make fantastic progress here too. 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.

A Level Progress 
Cardinal Newman College0.16
Blackpool Sixth Form0.02
Wigan & Leigh-0.01
St John Rigby-0.05
St Mary’s College, Blackburn-0.61

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.
