Pleckgate High School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 with a special Educational Outcomes Award.
Pleckgate was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving an award for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.
This was based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network).
“We are absolutely delighted,” said Head Teacher Mark Cocker. “We have had numerous accolades over the last few years, we have been hailed a ‘Beacon of Success’ by the Department of Education, we were voted Lancashire Telegraph Secondary School of the Year and this is another special award which recognises the dedication and hard work of staff, parents and pupils at Pleckgate.
“We have been inundated with students who want to start at Pleckgate in September and these awards are another boost for the school.”
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards, sponsored by Lexonik.
Pleckgate will be presented with their award in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “I am delighted that Pleckgate High School has won an Educational Outcomes Award. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Pleckgate High School. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
