Sarah Bonnell School Wins National Award

Sarah Bonnell School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2018 based on data from theDepartment for Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network. Sarah Bonnell School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving three awards for being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress, and for achieving high levels of performance from pupils eligible for the pupil premium.

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. Sarah Bonnell 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 Sarah Bonnell School has won three Educational Outcomes Awards. 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.”

Headteacher, Rae Potter, said ‘ I am always proud of the success of students and staff at Sarah Bonnell School and am pleased that we have been recognised by the SSAT for our excellent GCSE results’’
