Sutton Girls ranked 30th in the country in Parent Power survey
The annual Sunday Times' Parent Power Survey was published on 27th November. The survey ranks the top 250 schools across the country, based on the highest grades at A level and GCSE examinations. This year, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls has been ranked 30th of all secondary schools. At GCSE, 74.6% of all grades were A*-A, and at A level, 82.4% of all grades were A*-B.
Headteacher, Mrs Shackleton, expressed her pride in this acknowledgement of the school's outstanding results. "All involved with Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls were delighted with our GCSE and A level examination results. Above all, it is the individual stories of our students' achievement that means the most. They worked incredibly hard and supported each other every step of the way.
The Parent Power Survey is timely, as only last week we held our GCSE Celebration Event and we were honoured to be joined by The Mayor of Royal Sutton Coldfield, Charlotte Hodivala, to present the students with their certificates.
In addition to academic achievement and progress, we do our utmost to enhance and enrich the students' experience in as broad a way as possible: through sport and the performing arts, trips, residential visits, fund-raising for charities, leadership opportunities, clubs and societies. I am extremely grateful to the Governing Body, parents and all members of staff for supporting our students so magnificently".
