In 2014, St John Plessington became a Teaching School thereby extending our network further and we are a major contributor to our local area across all strands of the Teaching School remit.  Over the years we have welcomed over a 100 schools to view what we do well. In 2016, the college achieved a SSAT award for “exceptional student Key Stage 4 attainment” in recognition of being in the top 20% of schools nationally. We also achieved the SSAT award for “exceptional student key stage 4 progress” in recognition of being in the top 10% of schools nationally. We have received these awards each year since 2009. As part of the SSAT family we have contributed to the system by hosting a range of Conference Days as well as being part of Leading Edge. 

St John Plessington Catholic College Voluntary Academy has been an outstanding and oversubscribed 11-18 college for more than 10 years. In 2007 and then again in 2013 was judged by OFSTED to be outstanding in every category and over this time has been awarded numerous accolades. This has included the prestigious award by The Times Educational Supplement (TES) of “Outstanding Secondary school of the year” in 2010, Investors in People Gold Award 2013, the TES award for “Numeracy and Mathematics” in 2013 and were shortlisted for the TES award for “Literacy and English” in 2013. We were shortlisted for the TES Secondary School of the Year Award in 2018.  The College has been a national support school since 2009 and has provided extensive school to school support during this time.
