The school wins two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards
The school was delighted to hear that we have been recognised as one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment at GCSE. The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Gunnersbury Catholic School’s success.
The school has qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16, and in the top 10% nationally for high attainment. We have been invited to receive our awards at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT in London on 12 May.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘Gunnersbury Catholic 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 Gunnersbury Catholic 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.’
