KGV: still Top of the Class! - 14/01/10
KGV: still Top of the Class!

Southport’s King George V College has once again excelled in the recently published government league tables for Post 16 education 2009.

For the fourth year running, KGV achieved the highest  point score per student for state education in Sefton for A levels and their equivalent advanced level courses.

It was a similar story for the average point score per examination entry, where KGV topped the league table against Southport providers of Advanced level courses- the College even exceeded 2008’s impressive high score.

To complete this impressive picture, KGV finished top of the league against Southport providers for ‘contextual value added’- a measure of how much students actually improve from enrolling at the College to course and examination completion. This is seen by many to more accurately measure the impact an institution has on a learner’s progress.

Principal Hilary Anslow said: “These league table positions confirm that we continue to be a top provider of Post 16 education in the region. I am delighted that these figures represent the many hundreds of students who leave us not only with a set of hugely impressive qualifications, but also on the back of an enjoyable and happy experience at King George V. It is down to the tremendous amount of effort put in by both themselves and the College staff.”
