St Richard’s Catholic College has been nationally recognised for its exceptional 2015 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).

Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT shows the school is in the top 10 per cent of non-selective schools nationally for high average grades achieved by students.

It was also in the top 10 per cent nationally for progress made by pupils between their Key Stage 2 results at primary school and their Key Stage 4 results.

Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT said: “It’s my great pleasure to commend St Richard’s Catholic College 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 a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of the teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

“I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes awards will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at St Richard’s Catholic College.

“Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate St Richard’s Catholic College on their achievement.”
