School one of most im­proved

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

RHY­D­DINGS Busi­ness and En­ter­prise School has been named as the sec­ond most im­proved lo­cal au­thor­ity school in Lan­cashire.

Fig­ures from the Depart­ment for Ed­u­ca­tion show the Oswaldtwistle school, also the most im­proved in Hyn­d­burn, has en­joyed a ‘sig­nif­i­cant up­turn’ in its Progress 8 score which mea­sures stu­dents’ progress be­tween Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 across eight key sub­jects, in­clud­ing English and maths.

The school im­proved by 0.5 points over the last 12 months which is the equiv­a­lent of five grades per stu­dent.

Head­teacher Paul Trick­ett said: “In ed­u­ca­tion, one size cer­tainly does not fit all.

“We work con­tin­u­ously to en­sure each in­di­vid­ual stu­dent’s needs are met and that they are pushed and en­cour­aged in op­tion sub­jects just as much as they are in English and maths.

“There is no doubt any­where in life that achieve­ment only comes through hard work and ded­i­ca­tion, which both staff and stu­dents have clearly demon­strated over the last 12 months.

“This would cer­tainly not be pos­si­ble with­out the con­tin­ued ef­forts of my ex­tremely con­sci­en­tious, pro­fes­sional staff.”
