30 November 2018
Middleton Primary School is celebrating being placed in the best 1% of the most academically successful state schools in the country.
Based on superb SAT scores in reading, grammar and mathematics, the Middleton has been listed in The Sunday Times top 250 state primary schools.
“It has been a tremendous week for Middleton school”, Headteacher Rachel Roberts said.
“We are thrilled to be in the Top 1% of Primary Schools in the country. Children at Middleton make excellent progress and achieve outstanding results year on year. To be recognised in this way by The Sunday Times is real testament to the hard work of our teaching staff and pupils, especially as this good news comes within only days of being congratulated by the Schools Standards Minister for being in the top 7% of schools in the country for our achievement in the government’s phonics screening tests.”
Schools in England were ranked based on the aggregated average scaled scores achieved by children in their SATs taken in 2017.
