National recognition for Regent High School
In July we celebrated a double accolade: our first for being been named in the top 20% of schools in England for some of the fastest improving GCSE results in the country and our second for adding value to our students’ achievements at GCSE, based on the SSAT value-added scale. The recognition came after we attained outstanding results in 2012 with 62% of students achieving 5+ A*-C grades at GCSE, including English and maths; a remarkable 12 percentage point increase on 2011. These successes will inspire us to continue to excel and we are confident that our brand new learning environment will facilitate this.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, the representative body for schools, commented: “Regent High School has proved itself to be one of the best schools in the country at both improving GCSE outcomes for its students, and at outperforming expectations for their students and improving their future prospects. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Regent High School’s success. These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Regent High School and a vindication of their belief in high expectations, good teaching and ambition for every young person.”
