Keswick School wins national 2015 Good Schools Guide Award

Shortly after celebrating a record breaking set of A-level results it was announced today that Keswick School has won a Good Schools Guide Award for boys taking Physics at A-level.

Keswick School has been presented with this award by the Good Schools Guide for out-performing all other English schools in its category. The prestigious annual awards, which are in their 8th year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.

Simon Jackson (Headteacher) said, 'We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in A-level Physics. This is a very proud moment for Keswick School and we are sure it will inspire and encourage all our pupils to achieve the very highest grades and consider continuing their studies at universities such as Oxford and Cambridge'.

Ralph Lucas, Editor of The Good Schools Guide, comments, 'Our annual awards scheme is designed to recognise and reward excellence in teaching in every subject area at both GCSE and A-Level or equivalent. Our awards give individual teachers and departments where teaching is at its very best the recognition they deserve'.

The Good Schools Guide Awards are based on a series of calculations which take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
