SSAT awards winners!
Sexey’s School is one of the highest performers in England, winning national awards
Sexey’s School has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for its outstanding results last year. The awards are based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education and Ofsted, and for the school’s commitment to collaboration, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
Sexey’s School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving three awards for being in the top 10% nationally for student attainment in applied general subjects, and achieving significantly higher than national average student progress in both applied general and academic subjects, at Key Stage 5.
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools in a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “Congratulations to Sexey’s School on winning three SSAT Educational Outcomes awards. This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you.”
Helen Cullen, Headteacher at Sexey’s School added, “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by SSAT for the outstanding attainment and progress made by our students. I would like to thank my staff who have worked so hard to support and encourage our young people. Through their commitment and exceptional teaching and learning, they have equipped them so well and provided them with an experience that will prepare them for life beyond school.
“We are tremendously proud that this year’s results continue this trend for excellence, with the average progress a student makes at Sixth Form exceeding not only last year’s figure but also this year’s cohort’s target, giving us an ALPS score of 1*. As current Year 10 and 11 students start to review their options for Sixth Form, we welcome them to consider Sexey’s Sixth in supporting them to achieve beyond their expectations.”

Notes to editors:
* ALPS (A-level Performance System) is a system that allows schools to get a measure of the value they add to a pupil’s A level performance compared to what might be expected of them following their previous academic performance at GCSE. Outcomes are graded from 1-9 (with 1 being the highest) to show performance against national benchmarks. Find out more at https://alps.education/how-alps-works/.
