Painsley Catholic College, which has students from across the Staffordshire Moorlands, has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students' high achievement at GCSE.

A recent in-dept analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools' membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified Painsley Catholic College's success.

The school has qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 20 per cent of schools nationally for high attainment.

The school has been invited to receive its award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Waverley School in Birmingham on June 4.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: "Painsley Catholic 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.

"These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Painsley Catholic College, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network."
