Applied Learning Pathway
105 Year 13 students from King George V School, Island School, South Island School and West Island School successfully completed the Applied Learning Pathway. These students followed personal pathways that involved the Business and Technology Education Council award (BTEC), or BTEC with a combination of either IB subject courses and/or AS-levels. BTEC subjects studied include Art and Design; Business; Creative Media Production; Hospitality; Engineering; Performing Arts; Information Technology; Public Services; Travel and Tourism and Sport. Three students from Renaissance College also successfully completed the IB Career-Related Programme.
For the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma, 60% of entries were awarded a distinction or above and 85% a merit or above. For the BTEC Level 3 Diploma, 77% of entries were awarded a double distinction or above and 86% a double merit or above. For the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma, 82% of entries were awarded a triple distinction or above and 100% a triple merit or above.
IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)
2017 is the ninth year that Year 11 students at Renaissance College have completed the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and the sixth year for Discovery College students. Assessment is criterion-related with schools setting their own subject assessment tasks that are marked internally. Students also complete a Personal Project that is marked internally and then externally moderated and validated by the IBO. The 2017 results for both schools are again very strong. Highlights include:
- The mean grade per assessment is 5.59 points. This is the second highest figure yet for ESF and compares favourably to the worldwide mean of 4.4.
- The mean number of total points per student is 49.9 points out of a maximum possible score of 63 points. This is also the second highest figure yet for ESF.
Approximately 1,000 Year 11 students from King George V School, Island School, Sha Tin College, South Island School and West Island School participated in the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and its international equivalent the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). 56% of all examinations were awarded either A* or A grades and 94% awarded A* – C grades. This is the ninth consecutive year that more than 50% of examinations were awarded A* or A grades.
|ESF 2017||ESF 2016||ESF 2015||ESF 2014||ESF 2013|
For comparison 66% of GCSE grades in the U.K. were awarded A*-C in 2017.
We are pleased with the individual achievements of students in our Learning Support Centres (LSCs). Students took a range of external qualifications appropriate to their needs. These include: BTEC awards, (I)GCSEs, Edexcel Entry Level awards and the ASDAN Personal Development Programme awards.
