Hellesdon High School Sixth Form Celebrates Success in the League Tables
Hellesdon High School Sixth Form is celebrating success this week. The Department for Education’s newly released Performance Tables for 2015/16 have placed the school top of all state-funded Sixth Forms in Norfolk for progress, and in the top 5% of the country. Students have worked extremely hard alongside a team of dedicated staff in order to reach their potential, gaining a Progress score of +0.26.
“This is absolutely fantastic news. It’s really pleasing that the hard work of students, subject teachers and the Sixth Form Team, with the support of parents and the Wensum Trust, has been recognised in such a way. A Progress score of +0.26 equates to roughly each student getting a fifth of a grade better than expected in their A Levels, and puts us above national average” – Richard Taylor, Director of Hellesdon High School Sixth Form.
“The local governing board are delighted that everyone’s hard work is recognised in this way and would like to say a huge well done to all those concerned. This fantastic picture does not just happen overnight and is a combination of years of hard work and determination to give students a great education by a great many people. It takes an incredibly dedicated and highly professional team of people to make that happen” – Helen Wardale, Chair of the Local Governing Body.
