Horfield school best in Bristol for student progress
FAIRFIELD High School has been recognised for the rapid progress its students make.
The improving school in Horfield has been confirmed as the top performer in Bristol based on the progress students make between leaving primary school and finishing secondary school.
Using the measure, known as the value added score, the school is also in the top five in the south west and in the top 10 per cent in the country.
The school's head teacher Catriona Mangham said the high progress score highlighted that teaching and learning in the school was very good, resulting in students achieving better than expected results.

She said the results had been achieved by focusing on individual students and ensuring they were supported to perform above the expected.
Ms Mangham said: "We are delighted with our value added, which places us in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally overall, but also our maths, English, languages and humanities scores which place us in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally for these subjects individually.
"In addition, all our groups achieved high value added and our high attainers on entry made amazing progress.
"All this is testament to the hard work of the staff, students and parents over the past three years and shows that Fairfield is now one of the best schools in Bristol.
"It is everyone's hard work which has helped Fairfield get into this position."
