Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) has achieved the 2014 Educational Outcomes Award, awarded by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) in recognition of their outstanding student progress at GCSE. This is the second year in a row BACA has received the award.
The award follows the Academy being listed in the top 20% of schools nationally for value added, demonstrating the significant progress students make from Key Stage 2 to GCSE at BACA.
The Academy received their award at the Educational Outcomes Awards Celebration Evening held at St Marylebone CE School in London on Tuesday 6 May, one of five prestigious awards evenings being hosted by SSAT across the country. The Academy was also nominated to share their strategies for success with other school leaders during a ‘speed learning’ networking session during the evening.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, said:
“Brighton Aldridge Community Academy should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proven themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is lots of good practice for the Brighton Academy to share with other secondary colleagues. The award is testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy and demonstrates the impressive progress students are making at this rapidly improving school. I am proud that this Academy is a member of the SSAT network.”
