The results for the National KS2 tests, which were taken earlier this year, were last week published for all primary schools in the country.
The average score achieved by Cathedral School pupils in the examinations (Maths, Writing, Reading and Grammar) was the highest in the borough.
This news is excellent for the school and was on the back of being included in the Sunday Times ‘Top 600 Schools’ report published in November and which used 2013’s results.
Obviously, these tests of the ‘core’ curriculum are one part of the school’s success and we are very aware there are countless other ways to measure children’s successes in the school’s broad and balanced curriculum.
Nevertheless, these results are a testament to the hard work, dedication and talents of the pupils and staff of the school. Well done!
