Godmanchester school’s top of the table in Hunts
GODMANCHESTER Community Primary School was the top-performing school in Huntingdonshire in 2011, according to primary school league tables released last week.
The school, in Park Lane, was ranked eighth overall in Cambridgeshire for the number of Year 6 pupils achieving the national standard in both English and maths in the summer’s Sats exams.
A total of 94 per cent of pupils at Godmanchester Primary achieved Level Four in both subjects. In English, 100 per cent of pupils were shown to have improved by at least two levels since age seven, while 96 per cent did the same in maths.
Little Paxton Primary also saw 94 per cent of pupils achieve Level Four in English and maths, and was ranked 10th in the list. Bury CofE Primary was 12th and Great Paxton CofE Primary 14th, both with 93 per cent.
Across the county, 74 per cent of pupils got their Level Four in both subjects – up a point from 2010 and 2009. In English, 82 per cent were making the expected progress, and 81 per cent were doing so in maths.
