Ruskin 'one of the top 100 non-selective state schools in England'
Staff and students at The Priory Ruskin Academy have more cause for celebration having received official notification that the Academy is one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England.
In a letter from Nick Gibb MP, the Minister of State for Schools, the Academy was praised for showing ‘the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics GCSE’. This news follows Department for Education Performance Table Data released in January putting the Academy in the top 3 schools in Lincolnshire for both GCSE and A level value added. Headteacher, Ms Rachel Wyles, said: “To have our journey recognised, and to now be in the top 100 schools showing most sustained improvement is an outstanding accolade. We have a unique enthusiasm and vitality at Ruskin; we are absolutely driven in securing the best outcomes for our students and I am incredibly pleased that our energy, enthusiasm and tenacity has been recognised. We have a truly inspirational staff and a hard working student body – this really is a testament to them.”
