The Good Schools Guide has presented Canterbury Steiner School with an award for out-performing other English schools in its category. The annual awards, which are in their ninth year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.
Mr Ewout Van-Manen, school leader, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in Art & Design. This is a very proud moment for Canterbury Steiner School and the hard working teaching staff. We are sure it will inspire and encourage our pupils who are working towards their GCSEs.”
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 that take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
