SEVERAL primary schools in Mid Cheshire are celebrating after being placed among the best in the county in the latest league tables.
Antrobus, Little Leigh, Moulton, Davenham, Kingsmead and St Bede’s, Weaverham, were among those which excelled.
Key Stage 2 results out last week revealed that children across the county have again beaten the national average for higher-than-expected levels of academic achievement.
A total of 84% achieved level four in English and 81% in maths, which are both 4% ahead of the national figure, and 90% in science, which is 2% ahead of the country as a whole.
Of Cheshire’s 7.600 primary and junior school children who sat the tests, 38% achieved the higher level in English, 37% in maths and 50% in science, all well above the national average.
Schools with something to shout about included Little Leigh where high standards set the scene for a 100% pass rate across all three core subjects at level four.
Delighted headteacher John Hetherington put the school’s success down to a dedicated and committed staff and a curriculum which filled the children with “awe and wonder”.
