There is further reason for celebrations at Pleckgate, as the school has been ranked as the highest performing school within a 75 mile radius when compared with similar schools, for the amount of progress students make from year 7 to year 11.
This latest piece of information from the DfE is in addition to the other data published at the end of last year which testifies to recent successes at Pleckgate
“The school’s 2016 mathematics results placed us in the top 3% of similar schools nationally, with our higher level learners ranked in the top 1% of similar schools,” said proud Headteacher Mark Cocker.
Pleckgate’s GCSE English and mathematics results were significantly above national averages.
“There are other numerous academic successes including recognition of strong performance compared to national progress indicators in Science, languages and humanities,” continued Mr Cocker.
