STAFF and pupils at a Sunderland school are enjoying the summer after a scorching set of Sats results.
Sunderland High School said 76 per cent of the 11-year-olds who sat the Key Stage 2 Sats gained level fives in English and maths, exceeding both their own and national targets.
As well as 100 per cent of pupils gaining level four, which is the Government’s target grade, the school also had outstanding scores of 95 per cent gaining level five in English reading, 90 per cent in English grammar, punctuation and spelling, and 76 per cent in mathematics.
Clive Bulmer, head of Sunderland High Junior School, said: “It’s down to the dedication, commitment and well-regarded skills of our teachers who have devoted their time and effort for the children at this school.
“I am absolutely delighted with these Sats results. These are exactly the kind of results that we set ourselves to achieve as an independent school and as part of United Learning, giving the children an excellent start to their secondary education. With these results we are confident that, once again, Sunderland High School will be a Sunday Times top 100 prep school.”
