Staff and pupils at Archbishop Temple School are celebrating today after the school was ranked within the top ten state secondary schools nationally.
The Sunday Times Top 50 State Secondary Schools with No or New Sixth Forms Table was published yesterday and the secondary school in Fulwood was ranked seventh.
Headteacher, Mrs Gill Jackson said, “We are delighted to appear so high up on these rankings again. As these tables focus on the very highest grades, it is further evidence that the staff at Archbishop Temple School really know how to support our pupils in achieving life enhancing exam results. I am also very pleased to see our Teaching School partner, Broughton High School, is listed too; Preston is well served by excellent schools, and it’s good to see this acknowledged.”
Two schools in Preston appeared in the Top 20. Archbishop Temple School was ranked 7th and Broughton High School was ranked 13th. Both are lead schools within the Preston Teaching School Alliance.
Archbishop Temple School's exam results are consistently among the best in the country. This summer over 88% of pupils achieved good passes in five or more subjects, including English and Maths, ranking the school as one of the highest performing schools in Lancashire.
