Stover School Reviews

Average Rating:


"> Thank you for your feedback, Miss Littlefair. This information is very useful for parents looking at Stover School.
"> A Word of Caution Regarding Exam Results League Tables Unfortunately, due to regulations under which the DfE league tables are collated, the hard work and success of our pupils is not always fully reflected. The headline statistic used in League Tables is the percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A* to C grades including Maths and English. As a boarding school, we have a proportion of our pupils who come from overseas, for whom English is not a first language. We feel it to be in the best interests of these pupils to enter them for the ‘English as a Foreign Language’ IGCSE rather than the standard English GCSE – but results in English as a Foreign Language are not allowed to be included in the ‘5 or more A* to C grades including Maths and English’ statistic. We do however have to include all our pupils in our figures – even if they have never been entered for standard GCSE English. Effectively this means that some of our GCSE pupils were never even eligible for the chosen statistic in the first place – even though their Maths results were extremely good. A better indication of performance for a school such as Stover is perhaps the average points score – although even this has its limitations. A second issue is that at Stover, if a pupil really wants to sit a GCSE exam in any particular subject, we will support them in that. Particularly for some of our Learning Support pupils a result of a grade D in English or Maths might be a major personal achievement – highlighting some outstanding application and progress. In Stover we take pride in always trying to do what is in the very best interests of each pupil, in terms of entering them for exams, and choosing courses of study. - See more at:
