Denbigh High School has been hailed as one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England, based on Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 value-added measure.
The Minister of State for Schools, David Laws MP, wrote to acting principal Colin Townsend congratulating pupils, staff and governors for their hard work and thanking him and the school’s leadership team for their hard work.
Mr Townsend said: “We are gratified to have received this recognition for excellent 2014 value-added performance.
“We have always passionately believed that it is our responsbility to maximise the achievement of all students, regardless of their starting points.” He added: “There are in excess of 3,200 state-funded secondary schools in England, so to be highlighted within the top 100 non-selective nationally is a testamant to the daily hard work undertaken here at Denbigh High and our determination to secure the best outcomes for all our young people.”
This accolade is the latest of several received within the last 12 months.
The school was recognised by SSAT as one of the top two schools nationally for achieving the highest Key Stage 4 value-added scores for student achievement in GCSE exams.
It also won the SSAT Educational Outcomes Award, the Association for Physical Education Quality Mark Award and the Youth Sport Trust Gold Partner School award.
