The Halifax Academy wins national award for excellent results
The Halifax Academy has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017, based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network). The Halifax Academy was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving an award for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.
The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards, sponsored by Lexonik. The Halifax Academy will be presented with their award in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “I am delighted that The Halifax Academy has won an Educational Outcomes Award. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like The Halifax Academy. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
