A recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified Sidney Stringer Academy’s success.
The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% 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 Waverley School in Birmingham on 04 June.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘Sidney Stringer Academy 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 many schools will join us at the celebration ceremony 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 Sidney Stringer Academy, 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.’
Work starts on our brand new conference centre
and classroom facilities
It is almost three years since we first moved into our new building and work has just started to make it even better. Kier Moss who built the new academy are now responsible for completing our new two storey extension which will be attached to the Enterprise and Innovation Centre across the road from the main school.
The extension will consist of two new large classrooms with state of the art ICT facilities and also a large conference facility to accommodate up to 120 people. This will enable us to host more staff development opportunities at all levels and will also be available for use by the local community
Work is due to be complete late July.
It is official- we are one of the TOP 100 performing
non selective state schools in the country!
We were delighted to receive a letter from David Laws who is the schools minister congratulating us on the achievement of our pupils
" The percentage of your pupils achieving 5 A* - C including English and Maths shows that your school is one of the top performing non - selective state schools in the country. The results also show that you are amongst the 100 top performing schools in terms of progress and pupil premium. ... it is clear that you and your staff have provided the pupils with a good start to adult life "
This is a tremendous accolade the hard work of all our fabulous staff and of course our pupils. We are all so proud of them.
