Kearsley Academy placed 16 for the huge leap in numbers of young people leaving with a standard pass in both English and maths.
A standard pass is defined as a grade 4 or above, with the national average being 64.4% of students achieving this in the summer.
Kearsley Academy’s result stood at 65.3% — a rise of 23.3 per cent since 2017.
The academy is part of the Northern Education Trust, which saw four of its secondary academies in the top 20 most improved schools.
Kim McKee, Principal stated, “We are delighted that Northern Education Trust Kearsley Academy has been named as the 16th most improved school in England over this time period. We understand that to all parents, carers, community members and students, outcomes are paramount, and it is our relentless work on standards, coupled with a culture of praise and reward that is part of everything we do at Kearsley, that has allowed our Academy to move to a 5+ Maths and English pass rate of 52%, far above the National Average. We are proud to provide an Academy that serves local children with an excellent education and enhanced opportunities moving forward.”
