And our ‘Value Added’ data leads us to believe you will achieve higher A Level grades at Andover College than any other college in the area!

We have great stats – so how do we work them out?

We are transparent about how we get to our 100% A Level pass rate. We are proud to say that we don’t withdraw anyone before their exams if we’re worried they won’t make the grade. We don’t put them in a different category to avoid them being counted in our total. Our 100% pass rate is exactly what we say it is. We are able to deliver results like this by working with each individual and putting in place a specific support plan to enable them to progress and fulfil their potential. This holistic approach is what we feel sets us apart …this is the Andover Promise.

Ben Stokes

Head of Faculty for Sixth Form

“We have consolidated our position as an outstanding provider for A Levels. Not only were students able to build on last year’s superb achievements but also able to do this in light of significant A Level reforms, which posed challenges for students by the depth and breadth of a new curriculum. We’re very proud of our students’ hard work and commitment and our teaching team’s ability to help develop the skills for students to excel individually and produce standout results above the national average!”
