Mossbourne Community Academy

Description

The principal of Mossbourne Community Academy shows how the school has achieved impressive GCSE results and Value Added scores, despite being in one of the most socially and economically deprived parts of the UK.

Principal Sir Michael Wilshaw runs through what he believes are the five main reasons for the Hackney-based school's success; providing a structured environment; insistence on good behaviour; devolved management; quality teaching and learning, and consistent assessment.

These policies resulted in 85 per cent of the Academy's pupils achieved five A* - C at GCSE in 2009, including both English and maths - above the national average

The school's Value Added score is 1072, making it the top performing school nationally for Value Added.
