Measuring quality

Many aspects of educational experience cannot easily be measured: the quality of relationships; the enthusiasm and commitment of staff and students; a stimulating and purposeful working atmosphere; sensitive and caring support and guidance; a pleasant environment; a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Equally, there are other important aspects of College life which can be measured independently.

Added Value

During the past thirty years, the Government and other bodies – notably the University of Durham – have developed ways to measure the value which schools and colleges add to their students. Each of the models developed during this period has demonstrated that students at Hills Road achieve significantly higher grades than would be expected on the basis of the GCSE results with which they join the College.
