League Table Success 2019

Each January the Department for Education releases their league tables, showing how colleges across the country have performed over the past 12 months.

This years’ league tables continue to show that Cardinal Newman College is consistently ranked amongst the top Sixth Form Colleges nationally for A Level progress, putting us as the third highest performing Sixth Form College Nationally and the top within the local area.

A Level Progress is arguably the most important measure of a college’s performance as it reflects the distance travelled by each student, looking at their GCSE results and comparing it to their A Levels, to see what progress has been made during their time at a College. Our results for this measure show that no matter what GCSE grades you enter Cardinal Newman with, you will make outstanding progress with us.

Principal Nick Burnham said: “We are delighted with the league table results, they show once again that Cardinal Newman College is consistently placed amongst the top performing Sixth Form College’s nationally for A Level Progress. The tables show that not only do we have a consistently high attainment for our students, but also they make the best progress with us out of any college locally. As ever, these results are due to much hard work and dedication from both staff and students at Cardinal Newman.”
