School wins two national awards

LANGTREE School in Woodcote has won two national awards.

LANGTREE School in Woodcote has won two national awards.

Following its best ever GCSE results last year, the secondary has been given the Schools, Students and Teachers Network Educational Outcomes Awards.

This is for being in the top 20 per cent of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16 and in the top 20 per cent nationally for high attainment.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony in London on May 12.

Last year, 84 per cent of Langtree students secured five or more grades at A* to C (76 per cent with English and maths) and 39 per cent of all grades were at A* or A.

This placed the school fourth in the country in The Times’ list of top state schools with no sixth form.

Headteacher Rick Holroyd said: “These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and the leadership team at Langtree School and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person.

“Most importantly, I am delighted for the students in our class of 2014 as these results will open up so many opportunities and choices for them all.

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