OSH recognised for excellence in annual awards

November 4th, 2015

Old Swinford Hospital has won a 2015 Good Schools Guide Award for girls taking Biology and Music at A Level and boys taking Chinese at GCSE.

The school was 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 9th year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and designed to highlight consistently good teaching.

Headmaster Paul Kilbride said, “We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our educational excellence. This is a very proud moment for OSH and we are sure it will inspire and encourage all pupils who are working toward their GCSEs and A levels”.

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.
