SHIPSTON-on-Stour High School is one of the most improved in the country, according to new school tables.
The school was among the 100 best improved schools in terms of the progress students made between when they started at the school aged 11 to when they took their GCSEs five years later.
Minister of State for Schools, David Laws, congratulated the school and wrote in a letter that should this progress continue, he anticipates Shipston High will soon be one of the highest performing schools in the country.
Headteacher, Jonathan Baker, said: “We were thrilled to receive the letter which came as a complete surprise. We were even more delighted to hear how well our students had done compared to every other school in the country.
“This is the truest measure of how well schools are doing because these tables show the genuine progress made by students from when they first arrived at the school.”
Shipston High, who say they are the smallest secondary school in the county, was the only school in Warwickshire and Gloucestershire on the top 100 list of improved schools.
Mr Baker said: “These tables show that a student at Shipston High School will make more progress than at any other school whether in Warwickshire or Gloucestershire. By anyone’s standards this is a fantastic achievement!”
The Minister also congratulated the staff, governors, and students for their hard work in continuing to drive towards high standards of education.
