Pupils make the grade at local schools

Pupils at two village schools in Boston have certainly come top of the class this summer, after achieving brilliant results in their summer SATS.

Youngsters in year six at Frithville Primary School and New York Primary School exceeded their targets in the July exams with the vast majority managing a level four or above in both English and maths.

At Frithville Primary School 73 per cent made the grade in Engllish and 82 per cent in maths. At New York Primary School, which is connected to Frithville as they two are in the same federation, the kids did even better, with 80 per cent achievinglevel four or higher in English and 90 per cent in maths.

Headteacher Paul Bargh, who began the job last year, said: “I am immensely proud of the all the pupils and staff at both schools. It has been an amazing first year in post, with both schools having successful Ofsteds within three weeks of each other in January, topped off with the fantastic results this July. I cannot praise the pupils, parents, staff and governors enough for their support this year.”

He added that the schools always set challenging targets for pupils in maths and English.

Children at the schools said they were delighting with their results.

Harry Baldry said: “The best thing about this year was getting the results we wanted.”
