SJNCC joins Network for Highest Performing Schools
Sir Jonathan North Community College has been recognised for its excellence by becoming a member of the SSAT Leading Edge network, a national group of exclusively high-performing secondary and special schools. Leading Edge supports schools in collaborating to raise achievement, develop innovative new ideas and share practical strategies within the network and across the school system to benefit all students.
Run by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network, Leading Edge is made up of schools who have succeeded in making significant levels of progress and have helped their students to perform above the national average. Leading Edge schools are significant contributors to the school-led system and the collaborative nature of the network ensures that they have deep knowledge of best practice.
SSAT's Chief Executive Sue Williamson said ‘We are delighted to welcome Sir Jonathan North Community College to our Leading Edge network. It is a credit to the hard work of all of their staff and students that they have been recognised as high-performing and we look forward to working with them.’
Alison Merrills, Headteacher of Sir Jonathan North Community College, said; ‘Staff and students at Sir Jonathan North constantly strive for excellence and we are delighted to be part of a national network of schools with a similar ethos. Leading Edge is about collaboration with other schools, which fits with the work we do as part of our Teaching School and National Support School status’.
