Tuesday 29 November 2016 | By Samantha Hockney

Teesside High School has been named as one of the region’s leading independent schools in the 2016 Sunday Times League Tables.

The national league tables ranked schools according to their most recent examination results, with Teesside High securing a top 10 position of all North East independent schools.

Andrew Wilson, Head at Teesside High School, said: “We are delighted to have been named as one of the best performing independent schools in the North East region.

“To be recognised for our high level of academic attainment is testament to our dedicated and talented staff, who work tirelessly to achieve outstanding results with children of all abilities.

“Whilst exam statistics and league table positions are important, they do paint only part of the picture of Teesside High School. We are committed to providing an inspiring education based on the development of the whole child; outstanding pastoral care and an exceptional array of co-curricular activities are just as integral to our story and success.”

Now in its 24th year of publication, The Sunday Times Parent Power survey is based on the percentage of exam entries getting A* to B grades at A Level and the percentage of entries getting A or A* at GCSE.
