St. Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls has been listed as the top secondary school in Enfield and tenth in the country for the progress of its pupils.
The school, which has sites in Enfield Town and Palmers Green had 156 pupils at the end of key stage (KS) 4 in 2018 and they scored ‘well above average’; with a progress score of 1.32 this puts them in the top 1% of schools in the country on this measure*.
Data collated by the Department for Education, known as the Progress 8 Score, show the progress pupils make at school between the end of KS2 and the end of KS4. This is based on up to eight qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureate qualifications (including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages) and three other additional approved qualifications.
St. Anne’s School’s headmistress, Siobhan Gilling, said: “I am naturally over the moon by the extremely positive results achieved by the girls of St. Anne’s school though not surprised. At our school we strive to raise aspirations, develop independence and foster an enthusiasm for learning. These results demonstrate the extremely hard work of our students and staff. St. Anne’s students are not only a reflection of the ethos of the school but they also demonstrate their position in our diverse and wonderful community in Enfield.”
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Cllr Achilleas Georgiou, said: “Many congratulations to St. Anne’s School’s students, teachers and staff. We are extremely proud of this achievement and indeed all our secondary schools in Enfield where we see examples of excellence and high achievement every day.”
