St Clement Danes awarded Platinum Science Mark

Croxley Danes will use the expertise and experience of all of St Clement Danes' Faculties in creating a fantastic student experience at the new school. At the end of May, St Clement Danes received a visit from the University of York to verify the school’s application for “Science Mark”. This is a prestigious award and examines the school’s provision in science in the following areas:

• Big ideas in science
• Personalisation of science to meet students’ needs
• Science enrichment activities
• The school’s vision for science education
• Staff development
• Curriculum, student progress and the school’s intervention programmes
• Partnership working

The school was assessed and awarded Platinum, the highest accolade 
possible; St Clement Danes is one of only two schools in the country 
to receive the award at this level.

The assessor wrote: “The visit to the school only strengthened this 
application and I have to say, on a personal level, how impressed I was with 
the students. They were very honest and gave high praise of their school. 
Well done for being one of the first schools in the country to gain this award.”
