Gumley recommended by SSAT for GCSE results
Gumley awarded by the SSAT
Gumley House has received national recognition for the proportion of top grades achieved by its pupils in the GCSE examinations in 2011 (the award was given in June 2012).
Gumley has qualified as one of the top 10% of non-selective schools in England where at least 19% of students gained 5A*-A grades including English and Maths in 2011. Every school in the country has been ranked according to how well they performed in the GCSE results in 2011 in new rankings released by SSAT - the representative body for schools.
The new rankings, calculated by the SSAT using official data, raise the bar for schools by only counting the school's performance at the highest GCSE grades - A* and A - reflecting schools' desire to achieve the very best for their students.
Sue WIlliamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
"Gumley House should be congratulated for their stunning achievement in securing some of the best GCSE results in the country.
"Gumley has proved itself to be one of the best schools in the country at securing superb GCSE outcomes for their students. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Gumley's success.
"These results are a testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Gumley House and a vindication of their belief in high expectations, good teaching and ambition for every young person.
"Successful schoolsl ike Gumley understand the value of data, such as these attainment measures, in helping to ensure all young people perform to the best of their ability. The attainment measures show how schools are focussed on their performance and the outcomes of all their students."
