Crofton School in the ‘Top 100 in England’

I am delighted to announce that the school has heard from the Department of Education in a letter from the Rt Hon David Laws, Minister of State for Schools. The letter reads as follows:


‘It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on the excellent improvement in GCSE results for your school over the last three years, from 2011 to 2013. Your school has proven to be one of the top 100 in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grade GCSEs, including English and Maths. The results are a shining testament to the hard work and success of your staff, governors and pupils. I would like to offer my thanks to you and all at your school for your pursuit of the highest standards of educational achievement.’

This is a magnificent achievement because it is an acknowledgement of sustained high standards. Students, parents, staff and governors should feel rightly proud.

Mr Ciaran O’Dowda, Headteacher
