St Michael’s Catholic College has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students’ high achievement at GCSE.
SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified St Michael’s Catholic College’s success.
The school has qualified for three SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for high attainment; the top 20% nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16 and special recognition for their success in enabling students to fulfil their potential.
The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Holland Park School in London on 12 May.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘St Michael’s Catholic College should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.
‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at St Michael’s Catholic College, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.’
