The Chronicle and Echo have run an article listing the top schools in the town and the county. Timing is very important as it is designed to support parents of year 6 students who are presently making choices for secondary education for September 2016.
The website - www.schoolsguide.co.uk - has rated all the secondary schools in town according to key performance data including exam results, Ofsted reports, ‘value added’ score and pupil to teacher ratio.
Parents are also able to write a review of their child’s school and compare against others locally with a maximum five star rating.
The top secondary schools in Northampton according to the website are:
- Northampton High School (Independent)
- Northampton School for Boys
- Northampton School for Girls
- Quinton House School (Independent)
- Bosworth Independent College (Independent)
- Caroline Chisholm School
- Kingsthorpe College
- The Duston School
- Abbeyfield School
- Northampton Academy
- Weston Favell Academy
- Thomas Becket Catholic School
- Malcolm Arnold Academy
We are all thrilled to note how highly we have ranked on this report since it is based on factual information such as exam results and Ofsted reports as well as the amount of progress students actually make whilst at the school. What is also pleasing is how highly we have ranked across all the schools in the County which is reflected in the number of parents who are presently approaching us for places for their child at KC.
