One of our lighthouse schools and Apple Regional Training Centres (RTCs) has just been awarded a prestigious World Class School award, making them the only school in the North of England to have been awarded such a status and one of only a handful in the country. So huge congratulations, Churchill Community College!
The World Class Schools Quality Mark is awarded to secondary schools in England who have moved beyond an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgment, improving student progress, aspiration and achievement to a level that rivals the very best schools globally.
Assessment is a rigorous process, with students needing to put forward a compelling case for approval through detailed auditing of their school’s capabilities as well as video submissions and meticulous appraisals. So it’s a brilliant achievement for the college. As part of Churchill’s assessment, students were required to complete a social responsibility project and bring about genuine, positive transformation, working on a project at Wren Primary School in North London.
Miranda Perry, co-director of WCSQM said at the award announcement, “The Mark is about recognising how well the top secondary schools in the country prepare their students to thrive in the 21st century. We are confident that schools like Churchill Community College provide their students with the best life chances possible.”
David Baldwin, Headteacher of Churchill Community College said: “We are delighted to have been awarded World Class Status. Being the first school in the north to be recognised with this prestigious award is a real privilege for us, and one that we will embrace fully as an ambassador for the programme. This status supports our ongoing drive to raise educational standards for all of our young people.”
