The Weald School received national recognition this week for the proportion of top grades achieved by its pupils in GCSE examinations in 2011.
The Weald School qualified as one of the top 10% non-selective schools in England in terms of students gaining five or more A*-A grades including English and Mathematics, in 2011.
Every school in the country has been ranked according to how well they performed in their GCSE results in 2011 in new rankings released by SSAT, the representative body for schools.
Headteacher Peter Woodman said “We are thrilled that the hard work of staff, students and parents has been recognised. It is a great achievement to be ranked as one of the top 10% schools in the country”.
Sue Williamson chief executive of SSAT said: “The Weald School should be congratulated for their stunning achievement in securing some of the best GCSE results in the country.
“The school has proved itself to be one of the best schools in the country at securing superb GCSE outcomes for their students.
“These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at the school and a vindication of their belief in high expectations, good teaching and ambition for every young person.”
