Beverley schools among best in county

Beverley High School and Beverley Grammar School have been named third and fourth best schools in the county in this year’s edition of the Real Schools Guide.

It takes into account 51 different data points – including not just GCSE results and Attainment 8 scores, but also factors like Progress 8, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates.

Produced by publishers Reach, formerly Trinity Mirror, the guide has previously been praised by Government Minister David Laws. “Making information about school performances freely available allows parents to see how their child’s school is performing compared to others – and if necessary challenge it to improve,” he said.

St Mary’s in Hull tops this year’s league table, with South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College second.
