North Oxfordshire Academy Key Stage 5 Performance Measures 2015/16

These figures tell you about performance of students at NOA at the 16 to 18 phase of education. The figures were published by the DFE in January 2017 and relate to students who completed their 16 to 18 studies in the summer of 2016. 

Academic qualifications (including A and AS levels)

Progress (between end of key stage 4 and end of sixth form study)

NOA -0.19
National Average  0.00
Comparison with UK schools/colleges Average: 60% of schools in England 

Confidence Intervals

It is difficult to say with certainty how much the progress scores are down to the school or college (which may have scored higher with a different group of students) and how much is down to the students (for example some may have performed well at any school or college). The confidence intervals reflect this uncertainty. If the confidence intervals for a school crosses the zero line, then the school’s progress score is not significantly different from national average.
