Top 50 School in England

Posted: 10th December 2018

Top 50 School in England

Skippers Hill School has been placed in the top 50 independent preparatory schools in England by The Sunday Times Newspaper.

The newspaper released the top list which ranks schools according to pupil’s performance in reading, grammar and maths in the 2017 Standard Attainment Tests. Skippers Hill was the only school from Sussex listed in the top 50.

Year 6 pupils from Skippers achieved above the expected levels of children nationally. The 2017 SAT results show a continued increase of above average scores achieved by Skippers pupils following results from 2016.

Mr Mark Hammond, the Headmaster, said “I am delighted that children perform so well at Skippers particularly as the school does not place a strong focus on preparing the children in Year 6 for SATs. This proves that it is possible to achieve strong results and continue to deliver a curriculum with breadth and depth.”

He continued, “Sitting the SATs did not impact at all on the children's engagement in sport, performing arts, science or creative work, but is instead a reflection of the quality of the teaching and learning within the school. Well done to all the children who did so well.”
