School’s award in recognition of 2015 exam results


Seaford Head 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 the school is in the top 20 per cent 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 award will be presented at a regional celebration event held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers.

This award follows a recent letter from Nick Gibbs MP, Minister of State for Schools, which congratulated Seaford Head School’s excellent improvement in GCSE and equivalent results between 2013 and 2015. The school has been recognised for ‘being in the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five of more A*-C grades, including English and mathematics GCSEs’.

Sue Williams, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “It’s my great pleasure to commend Seaford Head 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 lots of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

“I hope the award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Seaford Head.”
