SCHOOLS in Farnham have again been ranked among the best in the country by The Sunday Times.

The 25th edition of ‘Parent Power’, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2018, identifies the 2,000 highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their recent examination results.

Weydon has been ranked the 15th best state secondary school in England for its exam results, with 31.1 per cent of GCSEs receiving A* and A (nine to seven) grades - albeit down from 37.8 per cent in 2016.

All Hallows School also made The Times’ list, coming 207th with 63 per cent of A-levels resulting in A*s, As and Bs this summer up from 59.5 per cent, while 38 per cent of GCSEs received A* and A grades.

Rankings in the secondary school league tables are determined by the percentage of examination entries gaining A* to B grades at A-level this summer (which is given double weighting) and the percentage of entries returning A* and A grades at GCSE.

At primary level, South Farnham School has been ranked the 25th best school in England for key stage two (KS2) Sats results - an improvement on its 30th place finish last year - with pupils achieving an aggregated score of 332, broken down into 109 for reading, 112 for grammar and 111 for maths.

Nearby Rowledge C of E Primary School also made The Times’ top 500 English state primary schools list, coming in joint 356th place with an aggregated school of 325, including 109 for reading, 108 for grammar and 108 for maths.

Local independent secondary schools were also ranked; Churcher’s College (141st in England), Farnborough Hill (162nd), Salesian College (272nd), Lord Wandsworth College (291st), The Royal School (294th), Bedales School (300th), Frensham Heights (371st), More House School (402nd).
