Article By: Jon Norden, Principal Published Date: 15/04/2016 We have just been contacted by the SSAT to congratulate us on the brilliant attainment figures from last summer, putting us up there with the best non fee-paying schools nationally. The press release from the SSAT reads: Abbey Grange Church of England Academy has been nationally recognised for its exceptional 2015 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT). Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has shown that the school is in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high average grades achieved by students. The school’s SSAT Educational Outcomes award will be presented at a regional celebration event held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers. Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: ‘It’s my great pleasure to commend Abbey Grange Church of England Academy on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration evening. I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students. ‘I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Abbey Grange Church of England Academy. Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Abbey Grange Church of England Academy on their achievement.’
