Jan 08 - Top of Surrey League TableRoyal Alexandra and Albert School tops Surrey League Table - again
Once again the Royal Alexandra and Albert School has come out top in the Surrey secondary school league table for Contextual Value Added (CVA) – the measure that shows how well pupils have progressed since primary school, taking into account a range of individual circumstances, including indicators of deprivation. The CVA score of 1033.2 puts the School in the top 3% in England.
Headmaster, Paul Spencer Ellis says ‘As a non-selective school we have children with a wide range of abilities and we are committed to helping each child to fulfil their potential. Our results are evidence of the hard work put in by both staff and by pupils.’
The Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a Voluntary Aided school with 760 pupils. Over 400 of the pupils are boarders and the remaining pupils are ‘day-boarders’. The academic success of the School is complemented by a full and varied curriculum and after school activities. Boarders and day-boarders are encouraged to participate in after school activities ranging from archery, scouts, kayaking, dance, Scouts and cookery as well as the more traditional sports. Mr Spencer Ellis comments ‘The ethos of the school is to provide an environment where all children achieve their full academic, social and spiritual potential. I think we are successful in achieving this.’
