Schools across the county have been celebrating their “best ever” Key Stage 2 exam results.
Headteachers from middle schools across Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire met for their autumn conference at the Barns Hotel in Bedford on Thursday, October 4. And high on the agenda was a celebration of their best ever set of Year Six national test results.
Headteacher Adrian Rogers, who leads the Central Bedfordshire Teaching School Partnership, said he was delighted with the set of results.
In Central Beds, overall the number of children achieving at least Level Four in maths and English increased by ten per cent. The number getting Level Five or above is equally impressive, with increases of ten per cent in maths and 14 per cent in English.
Mr Rogers said: “Last year we had the worst set of Key Stage 2 results we have ever had, but this year we are delighted with the improvement both in Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Council middle schools.
“I am really pleased that this year we had our best-ever.”
