I was wondering whether there was a more recent study than this Sutton Trust report: http://www.suttontrust.com/wp-content/u ... -final.pdf
or something similar? It's already 5 years old.
Taking on board some of the comment here, I also started looking at other indicators. This study was good as it also showed admission rates to the top 30 universities. It also showed how some schools need a much bigger grade for their cohorts, suggesting that some schools are much better geared at coaching the kids on maximizing their chances.
In short, are there any recent studies showing top schools (indy, grammar and comp) with:
- usual A level indicators (average grade, grades on academic subjects, % A*-A, etc...)
- admission rates to top 30, Russel Group, Oxbridge
- whether some school need to over/under perform to get admissions (suggesting knowledge or admission bias).
Also, I tried to follow on the advice to look for improvement indicators like value add, but I have not been able to find such a league table. Is there a league table showing the biggest value add schools, and then delve into biggest value add schools for low/mid/high attainers?
