What the school says...

Sackville is a thriving comprehensive school with a large and successful sixth form. its GCSE results have soared over recent years, with 73% of students achieving at least 5 A*-C grade passes including English and maths at GCSE in 2015, placing it amongst the highest schools in West Sussex. Both English and maths see C+ grades at over 80% and the same levels of progress from key stage 2 at 86%. All of these figures are significantly above both county and national averages. Sackville enjoyed a particularly successful Ofsted inspection in Spring 2015 and holds the UNICEF Rights Respecting Award which reflects its positive and caring ethos. Standards of behaviour are very good; expectations are unashamedly high. ...Read more
