Wilson's 4th! (out of 3,268)
Second highest-performing boys’ school in the country
IT'S NOT OFTEN Wilson's celebrates being placed fourth, but fourth in the country is certainly something to be proud of. This year we celebrated our best ever A level results and our second best at GCSE. Consequently we were delighted to be recognised as the 4th highest performing state school in the country (and second for boys only) by The Times in their recent Parent Power article. We are the only Sutton school to be placed in the top 15 and the only boys' school in Sutton in the top 20. This is a phenomenal achievement and testament to the dedication of all concerned.
On occasion it is said that the achievement of our boys is of no surprise given their abilities. Whilst of course they should achieve at the highest levels, it doesn't happen on its own. As a result I was just as delighted to receive a letter from the Regional Schools Commissioner (who is responsible for monitoring schools in the South East) congratulating us on the progress our students make from primary school. What the Department for Education recognises is that even given their abilities, our boys make better progress with us than they would at approximately 95% of other state schools.
Given that they achieve this and still find time to excel in so many other areas beyond academia, I think we ought, just for a moment, to congratulate all concerned. Their success is a tribute to you, them and my staff. I like to think that Edward Wilson would be proud.
