The school has received national recognition for the value it adds to its pupils’ high achievement in the key stage 2 tests.
A recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified The Cathedral School of St Saviour and St Mary Overy’s success.
The school has qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 20% of primary schools nationally their pupils’ high attainment, and in the top 20% for progress made by pupils between their key stage 1 tests, taken at age seven, and their key stage 2 tests, taken at age 11.
The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at The St Marylebone CE School in London on 06 May.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘The Cathedral School of St Saviour and St Mary Overy should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving outcomes for their pupils. 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 The Cathedral School of St Saviour and St Mary Overy, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every child. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.’
