2016- 2017 Impact and Outcomes for Disadvantaged students.

Overall our disadvantaged students data is largely in line with or better than the rest of the Cohort. This indicates that the interventions and strategies we put in place for these students are providing them with enough support to progress effectively. The numbers of students in each group are so small that when taken individually the influence of just one student can severely affect the data as a whole.
