Southern Road has been celebrated under a new programme set up by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to recognise exceptional schools in the capital. Schools for Success is part of the Mayor’s drive to help tackle education inequality and increase standards for all schoolchildren across the capital, whatever their background. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Congratulations to Southern Road for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. London has some of the best schools in the country, and Schools for Success shows the huge difference good quality teaching can make to pupils who started off behind in their studies. By sharing best practice with other schools across the capital, we can help every young Londoner reach their full potential, and ensure no child is left behind.”
On Friday 29th September Ms Crozier and Ms Yearnshire ventured to City Hall to collect Southern Road’s award and it is now displayed proudly in the trophy cabinet in the main office.
