A Preston school has been ranked as one of the top three in the UK.


The Sunday Times 50 state secondary schools league table has a Fulwood school placed third.

Archbishop Temple School in St Vincents Road has been praised for its strong exam results.

Headteacher Mrs Gill Jackson said: ā€œI am absolutely delighted to see just how well this school has done in these league tables.

“It makes incredibly encouraging reading to see that we are 3rd in the whole country for our A/A* grades.

“Iā€™m also very pleased to see schools we work closely with on this list too ā€“ clearly we know a thing or two about excellent education in Preston.ā€
