New College placed in Top Ten of colleges for English and Maths progress

alt tag

New College continues to be one of the best College providers nationally for students to make progress in GCSE (and equivalent) Maths and English.

Recent data from the Association of Colleges shows that New College was placed sixth out of 186 colleges for Maths progress and ninth for English.  The data is based on the Department for Education progress measures, which show outstanding progress for our Level 1 and 2 English and maths students in 2017/18. 

Amanda Spanswick, Faculty Manager, said

" This is a wonderful achievement for both our students and for the College.  Our English and maths teams work very hard to teach, support and encourage students, but all staff in College help to promote numeracy and literacy in their lessons and chase attendance for these courses.  Results this good really are due to a New College team effort."
