Recognition for excellent GCSE results

image004We are pleased to announce that we have received national recognition for the exceptional attainment of our students in the 2014 GCSE examinations.

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 us as a success.

We have qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for high average grades achieved by students.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “The King Edward VI School 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 The King Edward VI School, 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.”
