A PRIMARY school in Spen has been named as one of the top schools in the country in a list published in a national newspaper.
The Sunday Times Schools Guide named Hill Top Primary School in Low Moor as number 101 in its rundown of the top 400 primary schools in Britain.
The list is based on Key Stage Two performance, but acting headteacher Fiona Nolan said the school was about more than just passing exams.
She said: “We try to give pupils a more rounded education, and with all the extra curricular activities and groups we have, we try to educate them as people too.”
The school has now appeared in the list for three successive years, and remains the highest-placed school in Bradford on the list.
Fiona added: “We are really proud of all our children and staff at the school – this has been a team effort, and we are very pleased to be appearing on the list for another year.
“I think the secret to our success is that all our children achieve really well, and our policy is to not just cream the most talented children off the top when we let people into the school, we take people regardless of their background or ability – we believe it is more about what we can do for the children than what the children can do for the school.”
