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


Archbishop Temple School in Fulwood came seventh in The Sunday Times top 50 league table under the category for state secondary schools with no or new sixth forms.

Last year the school was ranked third nationally.

Broughton High School also made The Sunday Times list, coming in 13th after ranking 11th last year.

Both schools are lead members in the Preston Teaching School Alliance, which is designed to raise standards by improving the quality of teaching and leadership.

Archbishop Headteacher Mrs Gill Jackson said: “We are delighted to appear so high up on these rankings again.

“As these tables focus on the very highest grades, it is further evidence that the staff at Archbishop Temple School really know how to support our pupils in achieving life-enhancing exam results.

“I am also very pleased to see our Teaching School partner, Broughton High School, is listed too; Preston is well served by excellent schools, and it’s good to see this acknowledged.”

This summer over 88% of Archbishop pupils achieved good passes in five or more GCSE subjects, including English and Maths, making it one of the highest performing schools in Lancashire.
