Uckfield Community Technology College has been placed in the top 20% of schools nationally for their GCSE restults for the second time in three years.
And the work of staff at the college has been recognised as high quality through accreditation for transforming practice under a framework for exceptional education.
The Framework for Exceptional Education developed by the Schools, Students, and Teachers network (SSATs) is a self-review and planning tool incorporating the network’s 30 years of experience in school improvement.
It was co-developed with a group of high-performing schools, reviewed by leading academics, and supports schools in quality-assuring their work and sharing effective practice.
To achieve accredition as transforming in practice, UCTC was reviewed by another high-performing school and an independent moderator from SSAT.
SSAT’s chief executive Sue Williamson said: “For a school to be acredited for transforming practice is a real credit to their team and the quality of the work that they are doing.”
UCTC headteacher Hugh Hennebry said: “We are delighted to have the high quality work carried out by our staff recognised by the SSAT, and we know our students will be the ones who benefit from this.
“We pride ourselves with our continued professional development of our staff and this award shows the levels of professionalism and commitment the team has to ensure the best educational outcomes for our students.”
