Settle College has been recognised as a high-performing school and has been accredited Leading Edge school status, which is a national network of secondary and special schools. Leading Edge supports schools in working in partnership to raise achievement, develop innovative practice and share practical strategies within and beyond the network.
Leading Edge is run by the Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT). All Leading Edge schools must demonstrate statistically significant levels of progress and that their students perform above the national average.
SSAT’s Chief Executive, Sue Williamson, said “We are delighted to welcome Settle College to our Leading Edge network. It is a credit to the hard work of all of their staff that they have been recognised as high-performing and we look forward to working with them.”
Michele Costello, Principal, said ‘In today’s climate we firmly believe in schools working together and becoming a Leading Edge school is a great opportunity for good practice to be shared. To be recognised as a high-performing school is also very rewarding for staff, students and Governors.’
