Charles Read Academy has been ranked one of the most improved secondary schools in the country following the publication of school league tables by the Government.
The tables, which compare the GCSE results of secondary schools and academies across England, saw the Corby Glen academy ranked in the top 100 most improved schools in the last two years.
The ranking is taken from information on school performances which are published on the Department for Education’s website at www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance
Following improvements at the academy, the number of students achieving the key Government target of five A*-C at GCSE, including English and maths, has improved by 21 per cent in points since 2013.
Robert Sloan, principal at Charles Read Academy, said: “This is a very important step forward for our academy and a fantastic testament to both the students and staff at Charles Read.
“We continue to focus on setting the highest academic standards and I have no doubt that this year we will see even more students achieving their full potential.”
The school was saved from closure in 2013 when it was taken over by the David Ross Education Trust.
At the time it was part of the West Grantham Academies Trust, which had proposed closing the school and moving its pupils to St Hugh’s in Grantham.
