Staff and pupils at Taverham High School are celebrating after receiving a letter from the Minister of State at the Department for Education, MP Nick Gibb, informing them that the school is one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grades, including English and mathematics GCSEs.

The letter congratulates everyone at the school and Mr Gibb goes on to say: “Ensuring your pupils are achieving at least the benchmark standard of attainment at key stage 4 provides a strong basis for their further education and employment.

“Thank you for your work in this important area of a young person’s education and congratulations again to you and your staff for your hard work and professionalism.”

Headteacher Carol Dallas (pictured) said: “I am very proud to be the headteacher of a school that is making exceptional progress.

“Mrs Plater worked extremely hard over the past two years to ensure that the school has moved forward and it is good to have recognition of the staff’s hard work by the Minister of State for Schools.”
