The Highcrest Academy

Quality Mark

The Quality Mark is about recognising minimum standards in teaching literacy and numeracy.

Attainment of this award is normally based on a close partnership between the Basic Skills Agency, Local Authority and schools. The Quality Mark provides a framework for continuous improvement of the basic skills of all pupils in a school.

The Highcrest Academy is one of the few schools to have achieved this award four times. We have held the Basic Skills quality mark for nine consecutive years.
