A Dagenham secondary school is among just four in the country to have earned a prestigious award.
All Saints Catholic School, in Terlington Road, has been accredited with the matrix standard following a rigorous assessment.
It demonstates that staff are being supported with their professional development as well as the students they teach.
The school offers youngsters career interviews, Aimhigher activities and work experience to help them achieve their goals.
Christine Smart, matrix assessor, said: “All Saints Catholic School has developed an extensive programme to support its students to be able to undertake steps that will lead them to their ultimate objective.
