The Holy Cross School has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for their outstanding key stage 4 and 5 results last year.
The Holy Cross School was found to be among the best performing non-selective secondary schools and sixth forms in the country, receiving three awards for being in the top 10% nationally for attainment and for being in DfE Band 1 for student progress at key stage 4. The school was also recognised for achieving significantly higher than national average student progress in applied general subjects at key stage 5.
Mr Gibson, Headteacher at The Holy Cross School commented: “These three awards are a wonderful reflection of the work of our students and staff and the fantastic ongoing support we always receive from our parents.”
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools in a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “Congratulations to The Holy Cross School on winning three SSAT Educational Outcomes awards. This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you.”
