Sexey’s School has been recognised nationally by receiving three 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 ten per cent 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. 

‘Congratulations to Sexey’s School on winning three SSAT Educational Outcomes awards,’ said Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT. ‘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.’

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.’
