Attleborough Academy Norfolk wins award for exceptional 2015 results

Attleborough Academy Norfolk 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 that the school is in the top 20% 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 was presented to Attleborough Academy Norfolk Principal Neil McShane at a regional celebration event held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers.

Neil McShane, Principal, Attleborough Academy Norfolk, commented:

“I am so incredibly proud of the staff and students in receiving this national award. This award represents the outcomes achieved in the academic year in which we suffered the tragic and sudden loss of our much loved Vice Principal David Bartram. For us to achieve so highly in that year is a true example of the strength and resilience of our community and the award is a fitting recognition of this.”

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

“It’s my great pleasure to commend Attleborough Academy Norfolk 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 teachers  in engaging and inspiring their  students.

“I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Attleborough Academy Norfolk. Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Attleborough Academy Norfolk on their achievement.”
