Egremont’s Bookwell school ranked high in national table

Bookwell Primary School, in Egremont, was placed 18th out of 250 top performing state primary schools in the 2020 edition of ‘Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide’, which is now in its 27th edition.
The guide identifies the highest achieving schools in the UK, based on their most recent SATS test results.
Scores for reading, GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) and maths are scaled and averaged.

Average scores of 100 represents the expected standard children should achieve by the end of Year 6.
A score of 110 or above in any of the three measures indicates children working at a ‘higher’ level of attainment.
Bookwell scored an aggregate score of 339 from their 2018 results, achieving 112 in reading; 111 in maths and 116 in grammar.
Headteacher Russell Hardy attributes the excellent ranking and results to the school’s approach to support pupils without putting pressure on them.
