Churchill Academy & Sixth Form

Churchill recognised as one of the highest performers in England

Churchill Academy & Sixth Form has been recognised nationally by receiving a prestigious award for their outstanding key stage 5 results last year.

Churchill’s Sixth Form was found to be among the best performing non-selective sixth forms in the country, receiving an award in recognition for achieving significantly higher than national average student progress in academic 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.

“I’m delighted that the achievements of our Sixth Form students have been recognised in this way,” said Chris Hildrew, Headteacher. “It’s a much-needed bit of good news in these challenging times, and a reminder that our Sixth Form has consistently ensured excellent progress for students over the past three years. Our broad curriculum offer and student-centred provision are delivering great results for students who choose Churchill for their post-16 studies.”

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said, “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.” 

This award follows another SSAT award issued earlier in the year, recognising Churchill as a national leader for exceptional education.
