Three Sutton schools have hit the headlines after achieving excellent A-level and GCSE results this year.

Wilson’s School, Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington High School for Girls were included in the Sunday Times’ top 10 list for the best state secondary schools in Greater London.

Nathan Cole, head of fourth placed Wilson’s, told Sutton Guardian: “Schools are about mutual endeavour.

“As such I am delighted that our staff and students have achieved academic outcomes that stand head and shoulders above the overwhelming majority of schools – state and independent – in the country.

“The government recently recognised that the progress boys make at Wilson’s is in the top four per cent of schools in the country.

“However, I am equally proud of the Wilsonian character and spirit which values hard work, service and kindness. This character will be of the most value to them as they go into the world.”

Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington High School for Girls, which are both part of the Nonsuch and Wallington Education Trust (NWET), finished ninth and tenth respectively.

Jane Burton, CEO of NWET, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be amongst the top 10 schools in the capital.

“These results are due to the hard work of the staff and students across both schools, the support provided by our parents and the expertise and collaboration in girls’ education that the NWET provides.”

The two schools joined together in September 2015.
