Teesside High School climbs Sunday Times league tableMonday 27 November 2017 | By Samantha Hockney
“As a small, inclusive school, it is significant that Teesside High has made such strides in this area. Our students encompass a range of abilities, but they share great ambition and an unwavering will to succeed.”
Teesside High School has been recognised as one of the top ten best performing independent schools in the North East region by The Sunday Times.
The School, which caters for boys and girls aged 3-18, has moved up two places in the league table to eighth, having occupied tenth place in 2016.
The findings, published in the newspaper’s 2018 Good Schools Guide, are based on recent examination results.
Head, Andrew Wilson, said: “Everyone at Teesside High School is thrilled to have improved our top ten standing and once again be recognised as one of the best independent schools in the North East – the highest placed of any non-selective school in the region.
“We appreciate just how many schools this takes into account, not just on Teesside but as far north as Tynemouth, incorporating cities such as Durham, Newcastle and beyond.
“The Sunday Times league tables are based solely on academic ability. As a small, inclusive school, it is significant that Teesside High has made such strides in this area. Our students encompass a range of abilities, but they share great ambition and an unwavering will to succeed. Our specialist staff drive students beyond their target grades, adding value under an umbrella of outstanding pastoral support.
“Our results are consistently excellent, but we truly value what each of our students contributes to our School community as a whole – in the classroom, on the stage, on the sports field or in their work within the community.
“Whilst academic achievement paints just part of the picture of our School, we are delighted to be recognised in this regard once again.”
