Hollingworth Academy Commended for Excellent GCSE Results in 2014

Hollingworth Academy has received national recognition for the exceptional attainment of its students in the 2014 GCSE examinations.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Hollingworth Academy's success.

The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for high average grades achieved by students.

The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at St John Bosco Arts College in Liverpool on 30 April.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

"Hollingworth Academy should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

"These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Hollingworth Academy, 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."
