Arthur Terry School named top comprehensive in Birmingham for third year running

The Arthur Terry School has once again been named Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield’s top performing mixed comprehensive school for GCSE results – for the third consecutive year. The outstanding school has also been listed in the top 30 of more than 2,000 mixed community comprehensive schools in the country, and in the top 20 of all academy mainstream convertor schools in the UK. Joint Headteachers, Richard Gill and Neil Warner, said these results reflect the outstanding level of teaching and learning at the school. Mr Gill said: “This is a superb achievement for us. Birmingham has so many good comprehensive schools, so we are delighted to once again top the league tables in the city and to be in the the top one per cent nationally. To achieve this over four consecutive years is fantastic.” Mr Warner said: “We pride ourselves on being part of an outstanding and inclusive learning community. These results have been achieved by the hard work and commitment of our students, parents, staff and governors – and we are grateful for their continued support.” The Arthur Terry School is a centre of excellence. Graded as Outstanding by Ofsted in both the 11-16 and 16-19 phase, the school was praised as being “world class” by Education Secretary Michael Gove. Arthur Terry is one of the first 100 teaching schools in the country and one of only two newly accredited School Based Teacher Training Providers nationally.
