Leaways School London saw 100% of its Year 11 leavers gain both a Maths and English qualification. Additionally, 71% of the young people gained a qualification in Maths, English and Science.
Between them young people across the school achieved more than 48 qualifications overall, attaining an average of seven per student. The qualifications included GCSEs, BTECs and Functional Skills.
Young people undertook qualifications in a range of academic, functional and vocational subjects including Maths, English and Science and a number of them also achieved BTEC in Home Cooking and Sport & Leisure.
Their achievements have helped them secure places at mainstream college where they will study a diverse range of subjects.
Dr Lynda Mitchell, Kedleston Group’s Director of Quality and Compliance, said: "COVID-19 undoubtedly presented huge challenges for the young people at Leaways School. We’re thrilled to say that 100% of our leavers are moving on to further education in mainstream colleges or into training in an apprenticeship and we’re incredibly proud of them.
“They’ve shown great resilience and determination to succeed in achieving these qualifications which will give them a foundation to build on for further success.”
Leaways School is a day school and provides education for children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and also has an autism specific provision.
The school is part of the Kedleston Group which has a range of residential and day schools across the UK. Throughout the last academic year across Kedleston, young people achieved formal qualifications including GCSEs and BTECs across a range of subjects over the course of the academic year, even despite the restrictions brought by COVID-19.
These successes and qualifications have seen 100% of leavers across the Group go on to further education, apprenticeships or employment. All of those moving on to further education will move on to a mainstream college environment.
