Richard Challoner School is one of the highest performing schools in England

Richard Challoner School in New Malden has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for its outstanding Key Stage 4 and 5 results last year.

Richard Challoner School was found to be among the best performing non-selective secondary schools and Sixth Forms in the country, receiving three awards for being in the top 10% nationally for attainment and for being in DfE Band 1 for student progress at key stage 4. The school was also recognised for being in the top 20% nationally for student attainment in academic subjects at Key Stage 5.

Mr Sean Maher, Head Teacher at Richard Challoner School commented: “We are hugely proud of this achievement. 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”.

Students from Richard Challoner School will join winners from across the country at a ceremony to collect their award later this year.

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

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “Congratulations to Richard Challoner School on winning three SSAT Educational Outcomes awards. This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you!"
