The Malling School one of the best in the country for student progress at GCSE


The Malling School has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.

A recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified The Malling School’s success. 

The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.

The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at The St Marylebone CE School in London on 06 May.

‘The Malling School should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope many schools will join us at the celebration ceremony for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at The Malling School, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.’

Sue Williamson,
Chief Executive of SSAT

‘I am incredibly proud of the achievements of our staff and students in recent years and awards like this verify what we have known for a long time – The Malling School provides an excellent education for its children.'

Mr Roberts
Principal of The Malling School
