School Wins Award for Exceptional Results

 On Tuesday 3 May 2016 Headteacher Mrs Kilbey, accompanied by Deputy Headteachers Mr Gilligan and Mrs Simpson-Holley were delighted to receive the SSAT Educational Outcomes award on behalf of the school, at the South East Regional Awards held in London, one of a number held around the country which aim to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers. 

Since 2011, the progress students make from Year 7 to Year 11 at Jack Hunt School has been significantly above the national average for every year.  In 2015, we achieved an exceptional figure of 1025.9 for our Value Added progress measure; against the national figure of 1000; a figure which we believe to be one of the best in the City and placed us in the top 20% of schools nationally. This figure was confirmed by the Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT for the progress made by students between their Key Stage 2 results at Primary school and their Key Stage 4 results.

These figures reflect the hard work and commitment shown by both students and teachers and have resulted in the school being nationally recognised for its exceptional 2015 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT). 

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: ‘It’s my great pleasure to commend Jack Hunt School on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration evening. I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

‘I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Jack Hunt School. Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Jack Hunt School on their achievement.’

Headteacher, Mrs Kilbey said, ‘We are delighted to have received this award. It recognises the dedication, resilience, aspiration for all and sheer hard work of the staff at Jack Hunt School. It also recognises the commitment of our students to achieve the best outcomes they could; they are truly exceptional and we are very proud of them.’
