Sacred Heart Catholic School one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment at GCSE

Sacred Heart Catholic School 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 Sacred Heart Catholic School's success.

The school qualified for three SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high attainment; the top 10% 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 received their three awards at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Holland Park School in London.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: "Sacred Heart 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. These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Sacred Heart 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."
