The Radclyffe School operates an early entry policy. The school’s leadership and the governors continue to believe that giving many of our students the opportunity to sit external exams more than once ensures that they are able to achieve the highest grade possible. Because of this, official statistics for the school do not represent the true outcomes for our students for 2013/14,2014/15 and 2015/16.
The purpose of this document is to fill the gap in the official statistics, which are available here: http://www.education.gov.uk/cgi-bin/schools/performance/school.pl?urn=105738
Apart from using the students’ best result for English and Maths, this document uses the same rules as official statistics that were introduced in 2014.
