Dear Students, Parents and Carers
It's official - we are a World Class School!
I know that our school is world class. I know this from the lessons I observe. I know this from the breadth of opportunities available to our students. I know it because of feedback I receive from many parents and carers. It is clear through the conversations I have with parents and carers. It is clear through the conversations I have with 'experts' in education and from talking with students and families. What we have at APS is very special. I already know we are World Class, but it is always good to have external verification.
This week APS was informed that it is 1 of just 18 schools to have been awarded "The World Class Schools Quality Mark".
This is 'awarded to schools that demonstrate they far exceed the highest Ofsted inspection grade, and have successfully undertaken the rigorous assessment process to prove that they are a class apart.' Announcing hte awards, Miranda Perry, co-director of WCSQM said, 'The Mark is about recognising out well the top secondary schools in the country prepare their students to thrive in the 21st century. We are confident that our awarded schools provide their students with the best life chances possible'.
Well done to all involved in the life and workings of our school.
