GT TRIP TO HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, WESTMINSTER

On Monday 12th September Jenny Richardson and Wayne Crawford took 25 students (ranging from Year 8-13) to London with 15 students from Manor Academy and 2 local councillors to visit the House of Commons and the London Eye.

"After a long journey down we had a tour around the Houses of Commons and Lords. We walked along Tower Bridge to Macdonald’s, followed by a trip on the London Eye. The weather was brilliant and we could see for miles. The students’ behaviour was exemplary and they were a real credit to the Academy. They looked outstanding in their uniform and were fantastic ambassadors. We returned safely to school at 7pm and after a 6am set off some of us went straight to bed!!"

Sutton Community Academy’s latest GCSE results

Sutton Community Academy is celebrating its GCSE results. Provisional indications show that our Progress 8 figure, which is the new headline accountability measure, is set to be over a grade above the Government floor target.

New performance measures for GCSEs are in place this year, which means a change to the way exam results are reported.

Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school.

An academy’s Progress 8 score is calculated as the average of its pupils’ Progress 8 scores. It will give an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the academy made above or below average progress.

Progress 8 scores were recorded last year so they could be compared to this year’s scores. This year Sutton Community Academy’s overall score was +0.59 which places the academy in the category of outstanding progress. This means pupils have progressed a half a grade more than their peers nationally.

Attainment 8 measures the achievement of a pupil across 8 qualifications including mathematics and English.

Previously results were reported in terms of 5 or more A* - C grades including English and maths. If this were used for this year’s results the number of pupils gaining five or more A*to C grades including English and maths would be 41 per cent.

For pupils taking Ebacc, the pass rate of 22 per cent maintained the academy’s previous pass rate. This again will see the academy performing in line with the national average which is fantastic for this academic set of qualifications.

Principal, Tim Croft, said: “Sutton Community Academy is on a journey to outstanding and clearly our progress 8 figure reflects this.

“We have high expectations for students with a focus on preparing them for their future. I would like to thank students and staff for their hard work and wish them all the best for their next steps.”

Ian Cleland, CEO of Academy Transformation Trust, said: “The Trust is delighted with the outstanding progress made by Sutton Community Academy pupils which, when coupled with the excellent A level results confirm the academy is well on the way to being ‘Outstanding’.

“Well done to all of you.”
