Thorney among top ranked schools in city

2014-10-13 15.49.58

The Duke of Bedford School in Thorney has been ranked fifth best out of 56 primary schools in the Peterborough area.

The rankings are based on school performances at Key Stage 2 tests in the National Curriculum which assess reading, writing and maths skills.

Eye Primary School was ranked 37th and Newborough 24th.

As a district, Peterborough struggles near the bottom of results nationally, being 146th out of 152 local authorities, although it did move up two places this year.

This is blamed partly on the challenges of a high number of immigrants, which mean many children have English as a second language and many are from disadvantaged backgrounds.
