Stephen Metcalfe, local MP for South Basildon and Thurrock, has congratulated Gable Hall School for receiving a national Educational Outcomes Award.
The Award recognises the outstanding progress made by Gable Hall students at GCSE level and the value added by the school to student’s achievements.
Gable Hall’s success was identified in a recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state funded schools in England by SSAT, the national school’s membership organisation for improvement and collaboration. The school qualified for the award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.
Mr Metcalfe commented: “This is an exceptional achievement and a real testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and pupils at Gable Hall. I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to all involved and my thanks to everyone who works so hard to maintain these standards.
“I look forward to seeing the school go from strength to strength and hope that it demonstrates what schools in South Basildon and East Thurrock can achieve.”
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “Gable Hall School 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 many schools will join us at the celebration ceremony for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.”
“These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Gable Hall 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.”
