Downlands Community School wins national award for excellent results

Downlands Community School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network). Downlands Community School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving an award for being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment. The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards, sponsored by Lexonik. Downlands Community School will be presented with their award in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region. Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “I am delighted that Downlands Community School has won an Educational Outcomes Award. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Downlands Community School. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
