Number One In Wigan For Value Added
The Cardinal in college

The release of the Department for Education Performance Tables this week has shown that St John Rigby remains the top college in Wigan for A level progress.

The Value Added score highlights how far a student has progressed from the GCSE grades they achieved at school in Year 11, through to the end of their A level studies at college.  This score is evidence that students at St John Rigby College make more progress than students at any other college in the Wigan area.

The progress grade has been a feature of the Performance Tables for three years now and in each of these three years SJR has topped the table for schools and colleges in Wigan.

College Principal Peter McGhee said “This performance reflects the dedication and hard work shown by our students and our staff, and is an endorsement of the outstanding achievements realised during recent years.

“The Value Added score of a college is arguably the most important measure of achievement, as this compares GCSE results with A level performance and measures the distance travelled during a student’s time at sixth form.

“These results, combined with the Elective Programme and the wide variety of enrichment activities available here at St John Rigby College, mean that our students can progress on to the next stage of their lives well prepared for the challenges and opportunities that they will experience.”
