Statement for Universities

Matthew Arnold is an 11-18 academy serving a mixed catchment on the west of Oxford.

The vast majority of our students this year have taken three subjects at A-Level and continue into year 13 with three linear  A-Level subjects. A minority of students take four subjects and the EPQ is being offered to some students.

Our standard teaching provision is eight hours each fortnight. Given funding constraints some of our A-Level subjects have less teacher led sessions than our standard provision of eight hours per fortnight. These are further maths, music, drama, french, spanish, and textiles.

The predicted grades that the school makes are based on our internal assessments which take place throughout the year and in the mock exam period at the end of year 12 which contains published exam assessments. .
