Amazing outcomes in Alternative Provision

September 2022

As we know, young people nationally have had their education disrupted over the last three years but those who attend alternative provision schools like Haringey Learning Partnership (HLP) have faced additional challenges in their educational journey. Students usually join HLP as a result of their previous school placement having broken down, whether through ill-health, behaviour issues or other difficulties.

Despite these challenges, students at HLP proved that they can achieve just as well as their peers in mainstream schools. At Commerce House, in Wood Green, 80% of HLP’s Year 11 students achieved eight or more qualifications, with 30% achieving an astonishing ten qualifications.

Star performers included Maryam, who achieved grade 6+ in all her subjects, including three grade 8s in Maths and Combined Science and a grade 7 in Further Maths. Maryam is keen to start her A-Levels in September and has ambitions to study medicine at university in the future.

Demi-Lee was overjoyed with her eight qualifications, which included a grade 5 in GCSE Art and Design. Demi’s creativity will be invaluable as she moves on to college to study Hair and Beauty in September.

Over at Pulford House, in Tottenham, Ellie walked away with five GCSEs at grade 4+ including a brilliant grade 6 in GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition. Her peer, Rose, a fantastic artist, achieved a well-deserved grade 6 in GCSE Art and Design. Rose is heading to college to study fashion and has dreams of becoming a fashion designer.

HLP’s Tuition in the Community students also achieved some incredible grades this year, with Nye picking up grade 8s and above in all his subjects, including the highest possible grade 9s in Combined Science and Maths GCSEs. Nye will move on to study A-Levels with HLP next year, at the new post-16 provision, Philip House.

Gerry Robinson, Executive Headteacher of HLP said: “We’re incredibly proud of every single one of our Year 11 students. Our students often join HLP feeling less than positive about themselves and their life chances. Our job is to help get them back on track, so that they emerge prepared to make a positive contribution wherever they go next. I want to thank our tremendous team of staff who have gone above and beyond to support our young people through this challenging period. Thank you also to our fantastic families who really do work in partnership with us. This set of GCSE results proves that, with the right support, students who attend alternative provision schools can and do achieve great success.”
