De Warenne improvements continue

Today's performance tables show that De Warenne has once again risen in the National and Local tables. Compared to 55 similar schools nationally, De Warenne Academy is ranked at 12 and locally ranked as 4th. Well done to all students, parents and staff who helped us to achieve this.

De Warenne Academy in Conisbrough, a member of Delta Academies Trust, was today officially ranked as the fourth highest performing school in Doncaster this year and recognised as achieving standards in education which are above the national average. The national school performance tables also ranked the school as 12 out of 55 similar schools nationally. Principal Anna Rooney said “This is a real coup for the children and families of Consibrough and Denaby Main. Just three years ago the academy ranked 46 out of 55, and performance was unacceptably poor. The academy has improved steadily over the past three years from performing significantly below the national average to a position which is now above that standard. This is testament to the hard work of our students, supported by committed staff and parents.”

Delta Academies Trust, one of the largest multi academy trusts based in the North of England, is now placed second nationally in the Department for Education’s Key Stage 4 performance tables for Trusts with over 10 schools.   

This follows the news in December that Delta’s primary academies were first nationally in reading, writing and maths for Trusts with 20 or more schools in the equivalent primary performance tables.

Paul Tarn, Chief Executive Officer, said “I would like to congratulate students, parents and carers, staff, Principals, and local Academy Advisory Body members on these outstanding results.  The commitment of the Board of Delta Academies Trust to education in the North has had a dramatic impact for our communities. I am delighted that children in our communities are now benefiting from what is recognised nationally as a high-performing Trust.”
