Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Ashbourne has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for their outstanding key stage 5 results last year. The awards are based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education and Ofsted, and for the school’s commitment to collaboration, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Ashbourne was found to be among the best performing non-selective sixth forms in the country, receiving four awards for being in the top 10% nationally for student attainment in academic subjects, top 20% for attainment in applied general subjects, and achieving significantly higher than national average student progress, in both academic and applied general subjects, at key stage 5.
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools in a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
“Congratulations to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Ashbourne on winning four SSAT Educational Outcomes awards. This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you.”
Scott Garrity, Headteacher said:
“Really proud to once again be recognised by SSAT and other bodies for our successes in 2019. Students and staff worked hard to achieve these fantastic results. However, it is more about the journey along the way, the relationships which have been forged, skills and habits for life-long learning and teamwork throughout the school. The grades are important but the people are much more important – well done everyone!”
