St Peter's progress recognised

St Peter’s is officially one of the most improved schools in the country.

The Huntingdon school’s achievement in being judged ‘good’ by Ofsted in March, only seven months after requiring ‘special measures’ after an inspection in July 2016, has been officially recognised.

Headteacher Christopher Bennet and Chair of Governors Mark Goodridge were in London at the Education Business Awards event where their remarkable achievement was commended in the Exceptional Progress category won by Havant Academy, Hampshire.

St Peter’s was nominated by leading education professionals and reflected the hard work of staff and students over the last 12 months.

Mr Bennet said: “This recognition by leading educational professionals is a superb accolade for our students and staff.”

Stephen Munday, Chief Executive of The Cam Academy Trust which St Peter’s joined last September, added: “It is great that St Peter's has been formally recognised like this with this significant national award.

“Everyone at the school has worked incredibly hard to ensure that all young people get a really good education.

“In March, this was recognised with the first ever 'Good' grading from Ofsted in the school's history. Now we know that the school is judged to be one of the most improved in the country.

“The school is going from strength to strength and we are all delighted that excellence for all, the motto of The Cam Academy Trust, is becoming a reality at St Peter's.”
