Sir Thomas Rich's School one of the best in the country for student progress at GCSE

Sir Thomas Rich's School has received national recognition for the value it adds to students' achievements 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 Sir Thomas Rich's School's success.

The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.

The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Devonport High School for Girls in Plymouth on 05 May.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

'Sir Thomas Rich's 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, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

'These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Sir Thomas Rich's 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.'
