Mayor's Achievement Award 2017Mayor's Achievement Award 2017
Wembley High Technology College in Brent has been celebrated under a new programme set up by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to recognise exceptional schools in the capital.
Schools for Success celebrates schools that are achieving academic success with all their pupils, in particular disadvantaged or vulnerable students who started off behind their peers, or those affected by circumstances that could have an impact on their learning. In 2016 there were more than 39,000 pupils at the end of primary school[i] and 30,000 at the end of secondary school[ii] who did not reach expected levels.
The new programme creates a network for these schools to share best practice with others across London through events, school visits and online profiles. London’s schools are outperforming the rest of the country with last year’s GCSE results showing the city as the top English region for the ninth consecutive year.[iii]
Wembley High has been recognised in the Schools for Success Awards, because of the high levels of progress and achievement of pupils.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: 'Congratulations to Wembley High Technology College for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. London has some of the best schools in the country, and Schools for Success shows the huge difference good quality teaching can make to pupils who started off behind in their studies. By sharing best practice with other schools across the capital, we can help every young Londoner reach their full potential, and ensure no child is left behind.”
