Students, parents and staff are celebrating at a Croydon secondary school after the young people secured post 16 results that are amongst top 1% of the country.
Last summer students at Oasis Academy Shirley Park, an all-through school situated in Addiscombe, achieved the best rates of progress across Croydon for A-levels and Vocational subjects.
The academy’s A-level progress score has been improving each year, climbing from +0.2 in 2017, to +0.39 in 2018 and +0.50 this year. This means that, on average, students at the Sixth Form make half a year of additional progress in each subject compared to young people nationally.
The Academy’s progress is now well above national average, and the results mean the school is in the top 50 sixth forms and colleges in the country.
Vocational progress scores are equally as impressive, increasing increased from +0.13 to +0.30 in the last year. This ranks the academy’s results in the top 7% for progress across vocational subjects.
Saqib Chaudhri, Principal at Oasis Academy Shirley Park, commented on the academy’s success, saying; “We are thrilled for all of our students on their progress – they have worked hard and reaped the rewards. We wish them all the best on their next steps, wherever that may be. Their collective achievements are an inspiration to the younger students of what can be achieved.”
Andy Booth, Executive Principal at Oasis Academy Shirley Park, added; “What a wonderful set of progress results for our sixth-form students. We are deeply proud of our students’ success this year which are amongst the best in the country.”
“Credit to the staff from across the Academy – many of our sixth-form students have been with us throughout their secondary education. A special thanks to our Sixth Form team led by Ian Walsh.”
