Rastrick Independent School in Sunday Times top ten

19 November 2015

Rastrick Independent School is the only school in Yorkshire in the top 10 of the Sunday Times parent power national survey of the Top 100 Independent Preparatory Schools for SATS.

The School is ranked at number six nationally for SATS and at number 10 on the Top 600 Primary and Preparatory Schools. The three English scores are averaged and added to the maths result from key stage 2 Sats in 2014 to produce the ranking.

Rastrick pupils say thank you
Situated in the village of Rastrick in the Calder Valley, the School is celebrating its 21st year and has a proven track record in high educational results. The School’s educational ethos of structured teaching in small classes combined with a nurturing environment, an emphasis on self-respect, tolerance, good manners and discipline, has long earned Rastrick a reputation for excellence.

Head teacher, Mrs Vaughey said, “What a joy this is! To be the only school in Yorkshire in the top ten of Independent Preparatory Schools nationally – we are at number 6 – is astounding. What an achievement for Yorkshire! I want to congratulate our pupils and their families on such outstanding results. To achieve the number 6 position in the Top Ten Independent Preparatory Schools nationally – and to be placed 10th in the entire country, of all primary and Independent schools combined is a tribute to them and to parent power.

“We are fortunate at Rastrick to have a highly qualified and motivated teaching team. We are a family with a common goal: to enable our children to achieve the very best they can, with help and support whatever their ability. It is our privilege to see our pupils thrive and achieve these outstanding results. I can tell you there is a very big celebration being planned! My thanks go to an outstanding team at Rastrick. We just continue to go from strength to strength.”
