PUPILS at a Stapenhill school have celebrated an incredible SATs success story.

The staff at Edge Hill Junior School said they were thrilled when they found out that Year Six pupils had managed to achieve the highest test scores in the school's history.

The scores were described as a 'drastic improvement' on the results from 2013, as it was revealed 100 per cent of students scooped a level four or higher in maths – a 10 per cent increase on 12 months ago.

Improvements of at least 10 per cent were also seen in reading, writing, grammar and punctuation.

According to the school's head teacher Mike Mander, the scores are a result of new initiatives that have been put in place in the past year – and, of course, some incredibly smart pupils.

Mr Mander said: "It's been absolutely fantastic and we're all really pleased.

"It has been a combination of various things we have been doing as a school to put a greater focus on tracking and monitoring the children's learning progress.

"We've also increased the learning and teaching expectations across the school as well, and the teachers and pupils have staff extremely well."

"Every area of learning has seen an improvement on last year's results and we will try to continue to achieve such high results.

"The kids are obviously delighted with the results too.

"What they've managed to achieve is tremendous. They've all shown great improvements in the past few months.

"I'm really proud of all of the children and staff who have worked extremely hard to make this happen and they deserve it."
