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.”
