Recent concern with the academic performance of schools has led a number of local education authorities to develop systems for measuring the 'added value' that can be attributed to particular institutions in their control. An analysis of data published by one Midlands shire county on the performance of A level candidates in 1992 raised questions about the relative levels of academic achievement of pupils who remained within the Catholic school system compared to those who transferred to local authority institutions for their full-time education after the age of 16. A small representative sample of students from a Catholic school who had transferred to a non-Catholic sixth form college to take A level courses was interviewed. The students' comments suggested they found significant differences in the college ethos compared to that of their previous Catholic school. Those findings together with the analysis or the available data from the local authority, raise issues that merit further detailed research.
