    In 2011 there was a gap of 36% in our KS4 attainment figures when comparing our non-free school meals students’ and our FSM students’ examination results at the age of sixteen.  At that time Aldworth’s figures were broadly in line with the data, which indicated that there was a gap of 38% nationally between the two groups. 

    In 2012 at Aldworth we had narrowed the gap to 24%, a result of increased funding which enabled us to increase the range and effectiveness of our intervention strategies. In comparison the national average gap between the two groups was, in that year, 27%.  We also narrowed the attainment gaps in both Literacy and Numeracy; the gap in English fell by 3% from 32 % to 29% and in Mathematics the gap was reduced by 11%, down from 32% to 21%. These results are pleasing and reflect the success of the School in improving overall GCSE results over the recent past.
