A PRIMARY school in Queen Camel has been named in The Sunday Times' Parent Power league table for the very first time.

Countess Gytha Primary School is one of five primary schools in Somerset that made it onto the 500-strong list.

The village school has a ranking of 47. This school achieved an English rating of 111, a Grammar rating of 113 and a Maths score of 112.

A spokesperson from the school said: "Being the first time that we have made The Times Top 500, Countess Gytha Primary School is delighted in its recognition of the hard work of the children, staff and school community.

"Smaller, village and rural schools, are underrepresented in these measures so we hope that it feels like a win for other similar schools to ours.

"Being one of only two schools from Somerset in the top 50 schools in England, this is a superb achievement for our school.

"We hope to build on this success now, helping other local schools to succeed and together with our partners in the Preston Primary Academy Trust, ensure our children get the best start in their education and wider opportunities."
