Ofsted Inspection Report 2018 - Sixth form provision
At MPW Birmingham we pride ourselves on helping students to reach their true potential. Our admissions policy does not select on prior academic achievement alone and this means that we are able to help students with a wide range of abilities achieve excellent grades and ultimately pursue highly competitive university courses.
For the academic year 2017-2018 MPW Birmingham celebrated its fourth consecutive year in which the most common outcome at A level was a grade A*/A and where a third of exam entries overall were also at A*/A. At GCSE a record 54% of all entries were at A*/A or the numerical equivalent.
In addition to the achievements of our students in absolute terms, we are particularly successful in terms of "value added", which measures the considerable distance travelled by our students at A level relative to where they were at GCSE. In 2017, the most recent year for which data are available, we were once again placed within the top 10% of providers nationally by the ALPS value added system. We are also especially proud of the fact that for three years running, out of all the independent sixth-form colleges in the UK represented by the Conference for Independent Education (CIFE), the student winning the national award for best value added performance was an MPW Birmingham student.
The overwhelming majority of our A level students proceed to university to pursue a wide variety of subjects including Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Veterinary Science.
