William Farr school in Welton has been recognised as one of the best performing in the UK.

It won two important accolades for coming in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for results, and top 20% for progress of pupils.

This awards come from the Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT) after an in-depth analysis of Department of Education data.

Andy Stones, headteacher at William Farr, said: “We are delighted and proud that our work has been recognised as among the best in the UK.

“Of course strong exam results are important for the school but helping each student maximise their own potential, whatever that might be, is at the heart of what we do so to be recognized for both is fantastic.”

“SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
