Woodbridge: School among best in country
SUFFOLK’s top-performing primary school owes its success to staff who “go the extra mile”, its headteacher said.
St Mary’s primary in Woodbridge topped the rankings in the county for performance at Key Stage Two.
Inspectors found that every pupil was achieving the required standard in English and maths and also making excellent progress between Key Stage One (seven-year-olds) to Key Stage Two (11-year-olds).
Headteacher James Leese said he was “absolutely delighted” to learn the school was leading the way in the league tables. It is also rated among the top 50 performing Key Stage Two schools in the country.
“It is well deserved for all the hard work of staff, pupils and parents,” he said.
