A SECONDARY school has received national recognition for the progress it helps pupils make between leaving primary school and taking their GCSEs.
Rainhill High School was praised by the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration.
Figures showed the school being in the top 20 per cent of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their Key Stage Two results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.
The school has been invited to receive its award at a regional celebration ceremony at Waverley School in Birmingham on June 4.
Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT, said: “Rainhill High School should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement.
“They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students.
“These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Rainhill High School, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person.”
Headteacher John Pout praised the team effort behind the success.
