Jack Hunt School has been nationally recognised for its exceptional 2015 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).
Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has shown that the school is in the top 20 per cent nationally for progress made by students between their Key Stage 2 results at Primary school and their Key Stage 4 results.
The Netherton school’s SSAT Educational Outcomes award was presented at the South East Regional Awards held in London on May 3.

“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 on their achievement.”
