THE headteacher of Langtree School in Woodcote collected two awards on behalf of pupils and staff.

Rick Holroyd attended a prizegiving ceremony in London organised by the Schools, Students and Teachers network, which annually scrutinises official data on the performance of every school in England.

SSAT found the academy school in Reading Road was in the nation’s top  20 per cent for student progress from age 11 to 16 and for high attainment.

Last year, 84 per cent of Langtree students scored five or more grades at  A* to C (76 per cent including English and maths).

Thirty-nine per cent of all grades were either A* or A, placing Langtree fourth in



The Times’
league table of state schools with no sixth form.

SSAT chief executive Sue Williamson praised Langtree’s “exceptional achievement”.

She said: “They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share.”

Mr Holroyd said: “These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team and show what can be achieved with high expectations and ambition for every young person.

“I am delighted for our class of 2014 as these results will open up so many opportunities and choices for them.

“I am also very pleased for the staff and the school as these awards recognise all the hard work which has been going on for so long to bring Langtree to this level.”
