National Awards for Excellence

Richard Challoner School in New Malden has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network).

Richard Challoner School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two Educational Outcome Awards for being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress in the 2017 end of KS4 examinations. The school will be presented with their awards in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.

Mr Sean Maher, Head Teacher at Richard Challoner School commented: “Receiving these awards once again is a wonderful affirmation of all the hard work of students, staff and parents to ensure that all our students, whatever their background or academic ability, achieve their full potential. I am so proud of what our community achieves by working together for the benefit of all the young people in our care”.

The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures presented with SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.
