SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards for Prendergast School

Prendergast Hilly Fields College one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment at GCSE

Prendergast Hilly Fields College has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students’ high achievement at GCSE.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Prendergast Hilly Fields College’s success.

The school has qualified for two SSAT Education Outcomes Awards by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16, and in the top 10% nationally for high attainment.

The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Holland Park School in London on 12 May.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

Prendergast Hilly Fields College should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Prendergast Hilly Fields College, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this is a member of the SSAT network.’
