October News Headline Story - Top of the league!

After consecutive years of dramatically improving GCSE results at Sedgefield Community College, this year’s results saw the college achieve the accolade of being County Durham’s highest attaining secondary school for the first time in its history.

 

In a year when there has been much change in the education sector and a well publicised drive to reverse the so called ‘dumbing down’ of GCSEs, the GCSE results show the already impressive standards at Sedgefield Community College have risen yet again. In recent years, student performance at Sedgefield has led the school to be grouped amongst the highest achieving schools in the country, yet this year’s GCSE results prove that there are no signs of complacency, as the school goes from strength to strength.

 

Headteacher Dave Davies is absolutely delighted for students and staff, who have worked so hard to produce this stunning performance. “Being top of the performance league table is a fantastic achievement at any time, but it is all the more satisfying in a year that has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging for schools for many years.” He went on to explain that the reputation of the college now stretches beyond the local community. “In September we started the new school year with the biggest year seven intake the college has ever seen, and if there had been enough space we could have easily taken significantly more students such was the demand for places!”

 

Asked why he thought Sedgefield was now so popular, Mr Davies said he believes that parents realise that the school now delivers consistently, not just in terms of examination performance, but in the way it cares for students and of course the quality of teaching. “It is this consistency which provides parents with the confidence that they are making the right choice for their children.”

Mr Davies reassured parents that in spite of reaching the top of the performance tables, the school is still focussed upon the next step. “We know that if we are to continue to provide an outstanding experience for our students we must continue to measure our performance with the best schools nationally not locally. Parents and future parents of students attending Sedgefield Community College, can be reassured that this attitude won’t change.”
