School at top of the pile

STUDENTS at a Worle secondary school are in the top six per cent of pupils nationally when it comes to GCSEs.

Following its outstanding results this summer, Fischer Family Trust data just released shows Priory Community School came out as one of the top in the region for the exams.

The number of students at the Queensway site receiving five GCSEs at A* to C with English and maths, which is the new measure schools assess nationally, stood at 70 per cent.

A total of 84 per cent of students achieved grade A* to C in English and 72 per cent hit the same grades in maths.

Chair of governors, Gary Leece, said: “We were delighted at all of our students and staff who worked so hard at these results. So it is especially pleasing to find us so high in the nation’s league table.”
