National Performance League Tables 2017 – ATLP schools continue to improve

All three Arthur Terry Learning Partnership secondary schools are continuing to improve, Government performance tables show.

The Arthur Terry School has once again been named Sutton Coldfield’s top performing mixed comprehensive school, GCSE and Progress 8 results reveal. Its impressive scores also place the outstanding academy among the highest 25 per of all schools nationally.

The Department for Education’s official school and college performance tables – which are published annually – show that an impressive 87 per cent of students achieved the “gold standard” grades A* to C in English and Maths GCSES. In addition, its Progress 8 score of 0.22 places the outstanding academy above the national average and in the top 25 per cent nationally of all schools.

Headteacher and national leader of education, Neil Warner, said:

This is a fantastic result once more, which demonstrates our consistently high performance every year. We are particularly pleased with the impressive Progress 8 score, which is an extremely important measure in the new Government criteria.”

The Coleshill School, which was rated ‘good’ last year, is enjoying higher than national average results, with 65 per cent of students achieving grades A* to C in English and Maths GCSES.

Headteacher Ian Smith-Childs said:

These GCSE results are the school’s best yet, and we are really proud of the hard work and ambition of our students and staff. We are also delighted to see an increase in the number of the young people who go on to education, employment and training, with more and more of our students choosing to study A-Levels at our sixth form.”

The Stockland Green School is also celebrating after results show that the school is making further progress.

Acting headteacher Nicola Gould said:

We are delighted with our Progress 8 score of 0.1 and our GCSE results. Stockland Green is going from strength to strength and we look forward to improving even further as we make even greater progress at the school. “

ATLP CEO Richard Gill said the results reflect the quality of teaching and learning in all three schools and the high aspirations of staff and students.

He said:

We are thrilled with these results and the progress that our schools are making. This is testament to the hard work, commitment and dedication shown by subject staff and the tremendous support we receive from students and parents.”
