Bishop Heber Named as One of the Top 100 Non-Selective State Funded Schools in England

Home » News » Bishop Heber in Top 100

Bishop Heber High School in Malpas, the first choice school for the majority of Tattenhall senior school pupils, is celebrating being named as one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England.

The school received notification of this accolade in a letter from Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for Schools:

"Your School is one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded Schools based on the Key Stage 2 to Key stage 4 value added measure. This reflects the fantastic progress made by your pupils since the end of Primary School"

Head Teacher David Curry has been quoted recently in the Chester Chronicle ... "I'm so proud of the staff and students for their dedication and commitment". Historically, Bishop Heber students sit at least two GCSEs (and possibly up to four) whilst in academic Years 9 or 10. This helps students gain valuable and early experience in sitting public examinations. However, as Mr Curry further points out ... "This doesn't reflect well in any Department for Education performance table as they only recognise first not final entries. So to achieve this recognition is quite remarkable and would be even better if the students' best GCSE results were recognised".

Let's hope the current cohort of Tattenhall students can continue to extend the record results that were achieved by Bishop Heber in the summer of 2015.
