Fischer Family Trust (F.F.T.) Analysis

  • FFT analysis shows positive value-added across most areas. Grade 5 in both English and Maths is +8% but Grade 4 in both GCSE English and mathematics is -1%
  • Mathematics has the best results with +0.7 – this is particularly pleasing as students started from a very low baseline.
  • Males achieved better than girls and this is reflected in better attendance by males.
  • All types of ability of students have positive value-added. Higher ability students achieved the highest value added, followed by lower ability students and then middle ability.  This is also reflected in attendance patterns
  • Students eligible for Free School Meals achieved higher value-added than Non-Free School Meals
  • Both categories of SEND students have positive value-added
  • All ethnic groups have positive value-added with the exception of one (with one student in it). Our largest group of Black or Black British have +0.5 of a grade higher than predicted by F.F.T for GCSE English and +1.0 grade higher for GCSE mathematics.
  • EAL students had positive value-added with +0.8 and Non-EAL students had +0.7


Brent River College provides education for up to 36 students, aged 14 to 16, in our KS4 provision.  All our students have been permanently excluded from mainstream school.

Our students’ education has been disrupted and they more often start with us part way through KS4.  We enter all students for examinations and all students complete the Key Stage.

Our focus is to ensure that students achieve qualifications to enable them to progress to Further Education.
