"This is a really exciting time for the school"

The Hyndburn Academy (formerly Norden High) has seen a significant improvement in their Progress 8 score.

In summer 2017, Norden’s Progress 8 score was -0.93, one of the lowest in the country. Based on summer 2018 results, the Hyndburn Academy’s Progress 8 score has increased to -0.11, bringing it in line with national average.

Andy O’Brien, executive principal of the Hyndburn Academy and Accrington Academy, said: “Over the past 18 months, the Hyndburn Academy has undergone significant improvements and these league tables are testament to that.

“From its predecessor being one of the lowest performing schools in the country for Progress 8, to the academy now becoming one of the most improved schools in Lancashire, meeting the national average in just one year, is a fantastic achievement.”

Nicola Palmer, head of Hyndburn Academy, said: “I am delighted that last year’s results have placed us in an excellent position to be able to further strengthen our school over the coming years. This is a really exciting time for the school, its students, staff and the local community.”
