Value Added

League tables are published in national and local newspapers and are often strongly criticised by many educationalists because many schools massage their figures, therefore they are not a true reflection of the learning that takes place in many schools.

Raw league table results do not measure the student progress that a school achieves for its youngsters. Westbourne measures its success on the added value delivered to each individual child, whether a high achiever or a slower learner. Our added value across the board is very good.

We use CATs (cognitive ability tests), Key Stage tests, baseline tests and value added data to assess our students and to measure their academic progress against their raw ability.

A variety of national associations provide us with data and it is therefore officially recognised and moderated.

Your choice. Their future.
