Willowfield School wins national awards for performance
Willowfield School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2018 based on data from the Department for Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
Willowfield School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two awards for being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress.
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools for a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards. Willowfield School will be presented with their award during the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
“I am delighted that Willowfield School has won an Educational Outcomes Award. This recognises one important aspect of the school’s work but at SSAT we believe an outstanding school has deep social justice at the heart of its plan; it subjects that plan to constant challenge and innovation; and it liberates teachers to perform brilliantly in the classroom. 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 students, parents, staff and governors.”
SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network is a membership organisation of schools andacademies. They have been working with leaders, teachers and students for over 30 years to drive school improvement and innovation, and support their members through networking opportunities and professional development and school improvement programmes.
