Ashlyns School was congratulated by the government’s minister of state for schools, with staff commended for their “hard work and professionalism”.

The ranking looks at 
non-selective state-funded schools across the country.

Headteacher James Shapland said: “‘It is wonderful that our continued success and ambitious targets for further improvement have been recognised.

“This school provides a well-rounded educational experience for our students, and a key strand of this is ensuring that students leave with the skills and qualifications needed to equip them for life in an increasingly competitive and ever-changing world.”
