Schools across West Berkshire can breathe a collective sigh of relief this morning (Thursday) with the release of annual performance tables by the Department for Education.
Performance for both GCSE’s and A-Levels have now been counted up and released in full, and once again the district has shone, scoring well above the national average.
For the class of 2014 West Berkshire punched above its weight and beat the national average of 53.4 per cent with a score of 61.1 per cent.
New figures released today show that for 2015 across the district 63 per cent of students achieved the benchmark five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and mathematics.
