Mr A A Bodell

Headteacher

Blenheim High School, England

Used Alps weekly for 5 years+

Oct 2021

ALPS has played an integral part in raising student achievement at Blenheim High School since my appointment as Headteacher in 2017. The school was the most improved in Surrey for GCSE Results in 2018 and achieved its highest attainment for GCSEs in 2019. In 2020 a record number of Sixth Form students took up places at Oxbridge. ALPS is both simple and forensic. At a basic level it provides ‘real time’ position statements of students, groups and year groups against highly credible data. At an advanced level it facilitates deep analysis of trends over time and allows indisputable conclusions to be drawn. ALPS is also backed up by a team of educationalists who are easily contactable either electronically or by telephone. This high level of specialist support makes ALPS a highly valuable tool through which student achievement can be raised.

Mr A A Bodell found Alps:
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Targeted delivery to students depending upon tracking data.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Significantly improved public examination outcomes
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Improved public examination outcomes

Essex County Council, England

Used Alps for 8 years

It is clear, easy to understand and if used well the monitoring tools and practices can have a huge impact - the data drives the improvement questions to ask NOT the judgements to make

Robin Harbord found Alps:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Post 16 outcomes in Essex have risen significantly in Essex schools since the introduction of Alps - we were below national and am now consistently in the top quartile for attainment measures for LAs
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    targeted support from effective monitoring to individuals can result in greater challenge and support for all in the class.
  • Moderately improves school processes

Neil Wilkinson

Post 16 Projects & Contracts Manager

N/A, England

Used Alps for 18 months

Nov 2020

From my point of view, the data and information from Alps enables me to have an holistic understanding of A-Level performance within the Barnsley Borough. This information helps to shape intervention and support with providers

Neil Wilkinson found Alps:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Impact for me would have been seen in results 19/20, which are skewed due to the replacement of exams grades with predicted grades and coursework. The skew is evident in the results of our in Borough providers
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    I can't judge this from my opinion and the skewed results of 19/20
  • Slightly improves school processes
    I would say yes, but I can't judge as I do not work in a school setting

Christine

Data and Examinations Manager

Used Alps for 3 years

Oct 2020

It is like using all new systems, the more you use the more you can navigate quickly around the programme. The set up process I found cumbersome. Using admissions numbers caused me huge problems and I wasted a whole day trying to upload new students and after many emails your customer support finally uploaded the required students for me.

Christine found Alps:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    I am only saying neutral as we only purchased Connect Interactive this year, so we should see the impact this year.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Just seeing the thermometers with the results shows very quickly where the support is requird.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Target setting is so very quick. Analysis of data is immendiate.

In my experience, there is not a better school improvement tool on the market. It is always being refreshed and updated, with the full Alps package never standing still.

Julian Bushell found Alps:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Being able to identify areas of strong performance undoubtedly help improve performance in areas which are less strong.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Knowing - rather than thinking you know - which cohorts perform best and those less well undoubtedly helps improve the quality of teaching.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    When embedded in a school as a key lever for school improvement, the use of Alps data can undoubtedly help to raise overall school performance.

Rob Kesterton

Academic Vice Principal

Jumeirah College, United Arab Emirates

Used Alps for 6 years

Oct 2020

ALPS has fundamentally altered the way we as a college look at the data. The fact that staff can run 'what if' scenarios in Connect means that we now upload each data collection into ALPS for analysis. T Scores and group analyses allow us to hold departments/teachers accountable for VA, but also to support them in aiming for 'red hot'.

Rob Kesterton found Alps:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The ability of teachers to make targeted interventions, especially due to their increasing confidence with ALPS Connect.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Again, targeted intervention. And raised awareness of what expectations can be placed on individual students who may be underachieving.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    A confidence boosting cross-reference point for data tracking and recent CAG production. Empowering teachers with their own data usage.

Alps has been an excellent tool for Holyhead for helping us strategise and understand our data. It is simple to use and understand too.

  • Significantly improves attainment
    We use Alps to set targets and monitor assessments and attainment at KS4 and 5. Being able to have immediate feedback on grades is invaluable - it is also easy for staff to access and analyse their data.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Alps allows our teachers to quickly identify where there are gaps or issues arising, and intervene in an efficient and meaningful way.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    We use Alps to set both KS4 and KS5 targets - being able to upload prior attainment scores to create student targets is very straight forward, and allows staff to visualise the data. The What-if analysis tool is especially useful for this.

Alps has such gravitas and authority. Why wouldn't you want to have an understanding of it? You would be failing your students without it.

Una Sookun found Alps:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It allows you to see which students are underachieving across the board, in a particular subject and who needs targetting. Beyond that it holds weight with teachers and subject leaders and allows you to see the best performing subjects in the school and share good practice.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Targetting of students for feedback in class/to support in class.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
