Springwood High School at Lynn has been listed among the country’s top 500 schools.

Pupils and staff at the school are celebrating after being included in the Times “Top 500” Schools List for comprehensive schools.

The list is compiled by the newspaper based on the A level and GCSE scores achieved by the school in 2014. Every school in the country receives an overall score based on the percentage of A*-B grades achieved at A level and the percentage of *A* or A grades achieved at GCSE.

This year over 40 per cent of pupils achieved A*-B grades at A level and over 17 per cent achieved A* or A grades at GCSE.

Andy Johnson, Executive Headteacher, is delighted the school has received national recognition.

He said “It is great for our students and teachers to be recognised nationally for the excellent outcomes achieved this year.”

Chairman of the governors Roger Livesey is also over the moon.

He said “It is important that the school competes with the best schools nationally to ensure our students gain the best education possible.

“Well done to both teachers and students.”

The Lynn News last week celebrated success stories within West Norfolk’s schools during our education awards.

King’s Lynn Academy and Brancaster Primary were named school of the year.
