Value Added

MidYIS continues to confirm the quality of GCSE teaching at Malvern

MidYIS, administered by the University of Durham is the market leading baseline test used by schools in analysing the value added by a school between Year 9 (the Foundation Year) and GCSE results at the end of Year 11 (the Hundred). The value added results for Malvern College over the past five years are shown by the graph below. The results are impressive, showing that on average Malvern College pupils achieved GCSE results in each of their subjects between 0.5 and 0.6 of a GCSE grade higher than predicted by their baseline tests which they took in the Foundation Year. This clearly shows that teaching and learning at Malvern made a significant contribution to pupils' final GCSE grades.

ALIS puts Malvern College in the top 16% of schools for adding value at A level and IB

ALIS, administered by Durham University is used by most schools in the UK and internationally in order to analyse the value added by a school between the end of the GCSE year and the final results at the end of the Upper Sixth. The graphs below show the results obtained in A Levels and the IB Diploma Programme by Malvern’s eleven most recent exam cohorts, compared with the A Level grades and IB points predicted by them, based on GCSE results and baseline tests.

The results achieved in the Sixth Form by Malvern College pupils in ten of the last eleven years have been significantly above those expected, with the 2017 Value Added score particularly strong. The lower of the two graphs shows that for 2017 Malvern College was in the top 16% of schools for adding value to both its A level and IB pupils' results.

These results provide very robust evidence of the quality of teaching and learning within the Sixth Form at Malvern College.
