Head Teacher, Tracey Amos and Deputy Head, Jacqui Whiteman were delighted to attend a regional celebration awards ceremony at Devonport High School for girls in Plymouth on Tuesday 5th May to collect an award for 'Exceptional Progress'. The event,  a celebration of high achieving schools in the region, was organised by the SSAT (The Schools, Students and Teachers Network) and Great Torrington School received the award for being in the top 6% of schools nationally for academic progress made by pupils between their Key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16. 

Tracey Amos said, 'I was extremely proud to accept the SSAT award on behalf of all the staff, governors and pupils who have worked extremely hard to achieve this accolade.' 

Sue Williamson, SSAT Chief Executive was quoted as saying, '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 ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.'

Great Torrington School is a lead school for both the local area and nationally, and this achievement is reflected in our GCSE results.  Why not come and join us at our next Year 5 Open Day on Friday 10th July 2015?
