Quest is one of the best for student progress at GCSE
The Quest Academy 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 The Quest 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 Holland Park School in London on 12 May.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “The Quest 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 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 The Quest 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.”
Quest Academy Principal, Andy Crofts said, “I’m delighted that the success of the Academy and our students has again been recognised on a national level with this award. Students, staff and families have worked really hard to make sure that everyone aspires to be the best and achieve their potential.”
