Hewens College wins award for exceptional 2016 results

Hewens College has been congratulated by Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of the Schools, Students and Teachers (SSAT) network.  In March 2017, Hewens College was noted as being nationally recognised for its exceptional 2016 performance.  Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has shown that the College is in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.  This award is presented at a regional celebration held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

It is my great pleasure to commend Hewens College on their excellent 2016 performance and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at an SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration event.  We know how hard teachers work to ensure the success of every child.  SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award recognises the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Hewens College.  A big thank you and well done to the pupils, staff and governors."


Hewens College has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements 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 Hewens College’s success. 

The College has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16. 

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

‘Hewens College 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 Hewens College, 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.’
