Staff and students celebrate top of league performances
STAFF and students at Teignmouth Community School are celebrating the news that they are top of Devon schools' performance league table, second in the south west and 120th in the country.
The publication of the national league tables for secondary school performance shows Teignmouth Community School adds more value to the examination performance of each of their students than almost all other schools in the UK.
This is a step up to the top spot after last year's places of second in the county, seventh in the south west and 199th in the UK.
The school's aim in the last 10 years has been to focus on the performance of each student at the school to maximise their achievement and year-on-year the results have moved the school to this elevated position.
School principal Tony Gray commented said:"It has been a consistent drive amongst the school community of directors, staff and parents to make sure that all students who attend Teignmouth Community School, whatever their ability when they arrive at the school, do better here than they would at any other school.
"The commitment of the teaching staff in working towards this has been a major factor in these pleasing results and I'm sure that these will continue to remain at this high level."
