As a new school we are without external results and performance; the data currently available on the DfE site for our school can be read here. Our parent school Bohunt at Liphook in Hampshire is our blueprint for excellence.
The SSAT announces Bohunt School as one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment.
Bohunt School has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students’ high achievement at GCSE.
SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Bohunt School’s success.
The school has qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16, and in the top 10% nationally for high attainment.
The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Holland Park School in London on 12 May.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, said:
“Bohunt School should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools. ‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Bohunt School, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.”
Neil Strowger, Headteacher of Bohunt School, said:
“I am very proud of this achievement, however, this accolade is only part of what stands us apart; it is also our emphasis on outdoor learning, student leadership and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) collaborations with major companies which means our students have unparalleled opportunities. Furthermore, with our new build Sixth Form opening in September 2016 there is huge potential for generating yet more opportunities and increased rates of progress and attainment.”
