GTS: one of the best
schools in the country
for progress at GCSE
GTS has received national recognition for the
value it adds to students’ progress 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 GTS’s success. As a
result of this, GTS has qualified for an SSAT
Educational Outcomes Award, by being in the
top 10% of schools nationally, for progress
attained by pupils between their Key Stage 2
results at primary school and their GCSE results
at age 16.
The school has been invited to receive this
award at a regional celebration ceremony on
the 5th May, hosted by the SSAT, at Devonport
High School for Girls, Plymouth.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘Great Torrington School 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 other award-winning schools.
These results are testament to the commitment
and hard work of the students, teachers and
leadership team at Great Torrington School,
and show what can be achieved when skilled
teachers have high expectations and ambitions
for every young person. I am so
proud that this school is a member of
the SSAT network.’
