Archbishop Blanch CofE High School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network).
The school was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two awards for being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and the top 20% for progress.
The SSAT educational outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards, sponsored by Lexonik.
Headteacher Miss Duggan was presented with their awards at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
Miss Duggan said: “I am so very proud of the pupils and staff of Archbishop Blanch. To be recognised with not one but two awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of all involved in our school community – pupils, parents, staff and governors. Thank you and well done to all!”
Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT said: “I am delighted that Archbishop Blanch CofE High School has won two educational outcomes awards. This recognises an important aspect of the schools work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Archbishop Blanch CofE High School.
“SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors”.
