Have your say

A SCHOOL has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, undertook an analysis of Department for Education data on state-funded schools in England. Cowplain Community School has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results and their GCSE results.

Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT said: ‘Cowplain Community 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.’

Headteacher Ian Gates said: ‘To be recognised as being in the top 10 per cent of schools in the country is a superb achievement and I would like to congratulate staff, students and parents who worked so hard to achieve this award.’
