Top 20% of state funded schools nationally for progress
We are very proud to share with you achievement awards received from SSAT for Beckfoot Upper Heaton and Beckfoot Schools.
Beckfoot Upper Heaton and Beckfoot Schools have 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. They were found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, both receiving an award for being in the top 20% of all state funded schools nationally for progress. The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools are awarded a SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said of our schools: “I am delighted that Beckfoot Upper Heaton and Beckfoot Schools have won the 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.”
The schools will be presented with their awards during the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
Congratulations to all our students, colleagues and our school communities on such great achievements and well-deserved recognition.
