It was announced today, 17th July 2015, that Settle College has won a Good Schools Guide Award for the Highest Performing English Comprehensive School for Boys taking ‘Science in Society’ AS Level.
Settle College has been presented with this award by the Good Schools Guide for out-performing all other English schools in its category or displaying excellent performance. The prestigious annual awards, which are in their 8th year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.
Ralph Lucas, Editor of The Good Schools Guide, comments, ‘Our annual awards scheme is designed to recognise and reward excellence in teaching in every subject area at both GCSE and A Level or equivalent. Our awards give individual teachers and departments where teaching is at its very best the recognition they deserve’.
The Good Schools Guide Awards are based on a series of calculations which take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
The Good Schools Guide is the largest independent guide to UK schools.
