Darrick Wood School 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 and the top 20% nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their key stage 4 results.
The school’s SSAT Educational Outcomes awards 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 Darrick Wood School 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 awards will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Darrick Wood School. Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Darrick Wood School on their achievement.’
