Bishop Thomas Grant Catholic Secondary School is one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment at GCSE
Bishop Thomas Grant School has received national recognition for its students' high achievement at GCSE.
SSAT, The Schools Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Bishop Thomas Grant School's success.
The school qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between Key Stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16, and in the top 10% nationally for high attainment.
Mr Desa, the school's Headteacher, received the award on behalf of the school at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Holland Park School in London.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, said: “These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Bishop Thomas Grant Catholic Secondary 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".
