The Department for Education has placed the girls’ school is in the top 20 per cent nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.
Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT, said: “Convent of Jesus and Mary Language College should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. 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, and I hope many schools will join us at the celebration ceremony for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.”
