Value Added Results

What is Value Added?

‘Value-added’ is a universal measure of the progress that pupils make over a period of time, in relation to their starting point and in comparison to other pupils across the world. It is calculated by comparing what a child is predicted to achieve, according to standardised testing, with what a child actually achieves. Factors such as the quality of teaching and learning are known to have a profound impact on a student’s progress, which is why schools’ value-added scores can differ so much.

Our Value Added

We are incredibly proud that the Value-Added (VA) result for our 2022/23 GIS Graduates continues the positive trend at GIS, with our A Level students achieving +0.8 grade higher on average than forecast, and our IGCSE students achieving on average an incredible +1.39 higher on average than forecast. This means that, on average, in addition to a student’s aptitude for learning, the GIS experience improved each student’s outcome by between +0.8 and +1.39 of a grade.  This is a true testament to the quality of our personalised approach to teaching and learning and the dedication of our teachers and students. 

Our value-added results are based on data provided by GL Education, The Fischer Family Trust (FFT) and the Center for Evaluation & Monitoring specialising in the analysis of school performance data and providing value-added analysis.

Outstanding Cambridge
Learner Awards 2023

The Cambridge Learner Awards are designed to, in the examination board’s own words, “recognise the exceptional performance of learners around the world in Cambridge examinations.” Awards are divided into three categories: Top in Malaysia; Top in the World and High Achievement (for subjects not widely taken in Malaysia).

In the May/June 2023 series of examinations, 17 of our IGCSE, AS and A Level students were awarded ‘Outstanding Learner Awards’ from Cambridge Assessment International Education.
