The Teaching School’s leading school, Silverdale, has once again topped the list of the best performing, local secondaries – not just in Sheffield but across the whole of South Yorkshire!
A Progress 8 score looks at the performance and progress made across 8 GCSE subjects since the end of Key Stage 2. A school’s Progress 8 score is usually between -1 and +1, and the average Progress 8 score of all secondary schools nationally is 0.
At +0.67, Silverdale's score is the highest in South Yorkshire.
Gaynor Jones, Director of the STSA said:
“Given what a key role Silverdale plays in our Teaching School Alliance, we are delighted to see this recognition of the hard work of students, staff and parents within the school community.
The staff at Silverdale play a key role, delivering our courses, supporting our trainees, and helping shape our professional learning offer. Some of them provide specialist subject training to colleagues across the region. Others have helped establish the first-ever national teacher training course for modern languages – the National Modern Language SCITT.
Their dedication and professionalism shines through and is reflected in this outstanding achievement!”
