NORTH Leamington School is officially one of the best comprehensive schools in the West Midlands.
The school was ranked third in the Top Comprehensive Schools in the West Midlands category of The Sunday Times Parent Power guide.
Accolades are handed out to the schools in the region with the highest A Level and GCSE results.
North Leamington head Mike Lowdell said: “It was great to see the school’s achievements recognised in the Parent Power School League Tables. Our high quality outcomes, at both GCSE and A Level, are testament to the hard work of our students, staff and parents and carer body. We continue to deliver a vibrant and challenging curriculum which is supporting all students, not only to achieve well, but to secure high quality next step destinations.
“I want to congratulate all within our school community – North Leamington School is a fantastic place to study primarily because of the strong foundations we have built with all stakeholders who support all of our young people.”
Kenilworth School came fourth in the same category.
King’s High secured fourth in the best Independent school in the West Midlands category with Warwick School ranking tenth.
Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative annual survey of the country’s best schools.
The rankings in the secondary school league tables are determined by the percentage of examination entries gaining A* to B grades at A Level and the percentage of entries returning A* and A grades, and those graded 9, 8 and 7, at GCSE.
Elsewhere in south Warwickshire, King Edward VI Grammar School in Stratford was rated Top State School in the West Midlands – a position it has held since 2018 – and
Stratford Girls Grammar School was fifth.
KES headmaster Bennet Carr said: “It’s obviously very gratifying for us to be ranked so highly again but any plaudits we receive are down to the collective hard work and dedication of our students.”
