BYJHS top of School League Table in Salford!!
With the release of the annual school league tables on Friday, it can be revealed which are the top-performing schools in the Salford area based on student progress and examination results.
The government-released data covers a number of areas, but most significant in the education sector in recent years has been the Progress 8 and Attainment 8 scores of the institutions.
The school that achieved the highest Progress 8 score is all-girls’ Beis Yaakov High School, in Higher Broughton, which managed a positive score of 1.25 – well above average.
The overall results place the school in the top 1% of best performing schools in the country!
The Jewish all-girls school was founded in 1957, and was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in its last inspection, in December 2015. The school became a state-funded voluntary aided school in 2005, and converted to academy status in 2012.
Headteacher Stacey Feddy said of the achievements: “We are delighted with the results across the board. Every girl has made fabulous progress in all areas of the curriculum.”
She explained how the school used targets to achieve the students’ success: “We set aspirational targets for all our pupils and together with their hard work and the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff we have managed to motivate the girls to achieve these results.
“[Beis Yaakov] have targeted intervention for any pupil who is below target or struggling in any particular area. This usually takes place over the lunch period.”
Mrs Feddy explained that the school would continue to set aspirational targets and provide targeted intervention to achieve successful results, though was keen to stress that each cohort of students are unique and presented their own strengths and challenges, so should and would be treated individually.
