Peckover Primary School is among county's top 10
A Wisbech school is celebrating after being named among the top 10 in the county.
Peckover Primary School is in the top ten highest performing primary schools in Cambridgeshire, according to the Real Schools Guide 2020.
The guide aims to give a far more comprehensive picture than traditional league tables. It takes into account 45 different factors including Key Stage 2 results, progress, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates.
It covers the most recent 2019 Key Stage 2 results to give parents the latest information about how primary schools are doing across the UK, and which ones are showing the best performance.
The figures showed that Peckover Primary is ranked ninth out of 188 primary schools in Cambridgeshire and is also reported to be in the top 6% of schools for performance.
Principal Carrie Norman said: "I am delighted with this report which takes into account not only the headline attainment figures, but also other measures including progress across the school from each individual child’s starting point. We are a warm and inclusive school and we are delighted to have made the top ten. I want to thank our dedicated staff, wonderful children and supportive parents for a real team effort."
All Saints Interchurch Academy in March was this area's second best performing according to the guide and was placed 47th - the only other Fenland school to make the county's top 50.
