Three Sutton schools have been honoured by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan during an awards ceremony at City Hall.

Hackbridge Primary School, Robin Hood Junior School, and St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls were all invited to the Schools for Success event.

The awards aim to praise the achievements made in supporting pupils who need extra help to fulfil their potential.

It was hosted by the Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCarthy at City Hall near to Tower Bridge in Southwark.

Each of the three Sutton schools were celebrated for particular areas of accomplishment.

Hackbridge Primary was honoured for “investing in excellence for all pupils”, and Robin Hood Junior School for helping individual children with individual support.

St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls was noted for “high aspirations and ambitions for students, regardless of background”.

This is the second time Robin Hood Junior School, in Thorncroft Road, has been invited to the Schools for Success ceremony in two years.

More than a third of the schools which have been recognised are participating for the second year running.

Mr Khan congratulated all the schools involved and said: “Our Schools for Success programme shows the significant difference that a supportive and inclusive teaching environment can make for all pupils.

“London has some of the best schools in the country in the capital and, by working together, we can make sure that every young Londoner is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
