A Boston primary school is the fifth most improved in the country, according to league tables released today.

Department of Education data shows that the number of pupils at Staniland Primary School gaining a level four has shot up from 49 per cent in 2009 to 96 per cent in 2012.

Only four schools nationwide have managed a larger percentage jump in that time.

The tables also make good reading for several other Boston borough schools.

Both Fishtoft and Quadring primary schools saw 100 per cent of pupils achieve the expected level in English in Maths. When taking into account other measures, Fishtoft finished top for the county.

Boston’s Park Primary and Carlton Road schools were the top two in Lincolnshire for ‘value added’ - a measure used to look at how well schools improve their pupil’s performance above the average.

Park posted 103.4 and Carlton Road got 103.2 for their value added scores.
