Brentwood School has won a prestigious Good Schools Guide Award for the Highest Performing English Independent School for Girls taking the GCSE Short Course in Religious Studies.
Making the announcement, the Good Schools Guide said Brentwood had been presented with the Gold Award for out-performing all other English schools in its category or displaying excellent performance.
The annual awards, which are in their eighth year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.
Headmaster Ian Davies said: “We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in the teaching of Religious Education. I am confident this success will inspire and encourage all pupils who are working towards their A-levels or International Baccalaureate Diploma.”
Ralph Lucas, Editor of The Good Schools Guide, added: “Our annual awards scheme is designed to recognise and reward excellence in teaching in every subject area at both GCSE and A-level or equivalent. Our awards give individual teachers and departments where teaching is at its very best the recognition they deserve.”
The Good Schools Guide Awards are based on a series of calculations which take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
