Academic Excellence and SATS RESULTS
The academic achievements of Westville pupils in the National SAT papers and the entrance exams for the senior schools are exceptional. Every year the children perform above the National Average and achieve a high number of scholarships to many senior independent schools such as The Grammar School at Leeds, Bradford Grammar School, Woodhouse Grove, Giggleswick, Sedbergh, Ashville College to name but a few
Congratulations must go to all the children. They have work enormously hard and should be justly proud of their achievements.
The following tables gives our results for the externally marked SAT papers – included also are the National results for comparison. The writing in English is now internally assessed and is combined with the reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling marks to give an overall English mark.
The Westville House results not only show evidence of the high standards that we are setting but also show that our pupils consistently achieve higher than their predicted results. As a non-selective school we are able to prove that whatever the ability of a pupil, they fulfil their potential and more.
Pupils are entered into the SATs each year for several reasons - primarily they are an externally assessed benchmark for parents to judge the standards within the school against the national standards. Every year a proportion of Westville pupils who move onto state secondary schools - by taking the SATs they can move seamlessly into the state sector with the same educational records as their peers.
We congratulate all of the pupils, teachers and parents for these great achievements - these results are due to a true partnership in the education of each child. Particularly pleasing is that these results reflect many of the talents that we aim to develop in our pupils.
Our mission statement states our aim “to provide the children with a first-class start in life, giving them an excellent grounding for their secondary education and their futures.” It is always with great pleasure that we hear from parents and Head Teachers alike, of how well our pupils cope with the transition to their next school.
Our family ethos and high standards enable each child to give of their very best and develop into happy, well balanced young people, as these great results show.
