Pupils from Towcester Primary School celebrating after showing improvement in the school league tables

A village primary school in south Northants is one of just 159 in the country to be recognised for excellence in this year’s national Key Stage Two tests.

Following details released by the government on December 6, 100 per cent of Year Six pupils at Farthinghoe Primary School gained a level 4B or above in reading and maths and a level four or above in writing, which sees the school ranked 13th in the whole country.

In recognition of their hard work, they received a letter of congratulation from Minister of State for Schools David Laws MP.

Headteacher Fiona Toman said she was delighted with the news.

She said: “We are absolutely thrilled. This is down to the hard work and commitment from the children, teachers and school governors.

“We are incredibly proud of everyone and we hope we can continue this going forward.”

Towcester CofE Primary School is also celebrating after showing an improvement in the school league tables.

The school is in the top 20 per cent of schools in England when it comes to pupil progress with 93 per cent achieving the national standard in all subjects, up from 77 per cent last year.

Among the top 1,000 schools in the country were John Hellins Primary, in Potterspury, Yardley Gobion CofE, St Loys CofE Primary, in Weedon Lois, Croughton All Saints CofE and Gayton CofE.
