Sutton Community Academy is part of the Academy Transformation Trust family of academies.
We believe every child matters and deserves a first class education. Our team knows first-hand how to make education better for schools, pupils and their teachers.
For us, the future of UK education relies upon schools working closely together to share best practices, giving every child the best chance in life. We set up ATT to make this vision a reality.
As a not for profit trust, we work with our growing family of primary and secondary academies and further education provider in the Midlands, East of England and South East.
Our mission is to provide the very best education for all pupils and the highest level of support for our staff to ensure every child leaves our academies with everything they need to reach their full potential.
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’.
Sutton Community Academy is celebrating following an increase in A-level results.
This year 100 per cent of students have gained A-level passes compared to 98.3 per cent last year. 61.2 percent of pupils have achieved A*-C which again, is an improvement on 2015. Vocational results continue to be outstanding and well above national averages.
All of our students who have applied to go to university have gained their places and no student will have to go through the clearing process which is fantastic. Art continues to be one of our highest performing subjects with 100 per cent A*-C grades. 40 per cent of them were A grades, 40 per cent B grades and 20 per cent C grades.
Principal, Tim Croft, said: Sutton Community Academy is on a journey to outstanding and these results are a step in that direction. The Sixth Form has undergone a complete revamp in the last two years and the foundations are now in place for this to flourish. I would like to thank all staff and students for their commitment and hard work over the last two years to wish the students all the best with their next steps.
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive of Academy Transformation Trust said: “Congratulations to all concerned, students and staff, for these results which reflect the excellent quality of post 16 provision at the academy. Sutton Community Academy continues its significant improvements since becoming an academy. It is now well on its way on the flight path to outstanding.” ... See MoreSee Less
