A Pocklington primary school is top of the class when it comes to test results, according to the Department for Education’s School Performance Table.

St Mary and St Joseph Primary is ranked among the top 200 primary schools in England based on performance in 2014.

The Maxwell Road establishment is one of only a small proportion of schools in the country able to boast that 100% of its Year 6 pupils have achieved at least Level 4 in reading, writing and maths, which is the new ‘gold standard’ for the end of Key Stage 2.
