The school has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).

City of London Academy in Southwark was identified as  being among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two awards for being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and for achieving high levels of performance for disadvantaged pupils.

The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England, with the highest performing for a range of key measures and celebrated at the SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards.

As a result of wining these three awards, City of London Academy  Southwark has also been invited to join the SSAT Leading Edge network of schools to share and further develop best practice for other schools.

In addition to the SSAT wins, analysis from Alps, a performance system that tracks student progress, found that City of London Academy was in the top 25% of 2,890 schools and colleges for A-Level performance.

Cllr Victoria Mills, Cabinet Member for Children and Schools said:  “This is a great achievement for the City of London Academy in Southwark. These achievements highlight the hard work that staff, pupils and parents have put in. Well done to the whole school community.”
