St Mary's College, Voluntary Catholic Academy has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for their outstanding Key Stage 4 & 5 results last year.
The awards are based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education and Ofsted and for the school’s commitment to collaboration, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
St Mary's College, Voluntary Catholic Academy was found to be among the best performing non-selective secondary schools and sixth forms in the country, receiving six awards for being in the top 20% nationally for attainment and for being in DfE Band 1 for student progress at Key Stage 4. The school was also recognised for being in the top 10% nationally for student attainment and achieving significantly higher than national average student progress in both academic and applied general subjects at Key Stage 5.
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 St Mary's College, Voluntary Catholic Academy on winning six 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.”
Head of School at St Mary’s College, Dave Perry added: “We are very proud to again receive this wonderful acknowledgement from the SSAT. Such accolades are a fitting recognition of the incredible hard work, commitment and determination of our exceptional students and staff. Much can be lost in school statistics and headline measures but behind them are the young people at the centre of all we are and do. Our students remain our absolute focus at St Mary’s and we will continue to strive for excellence in their service.”
