Keswick School has been named as the top state school in Cumbria by a prestigious guide.
The Sunday Times Parent Power guide, which features the leading schools across the country, said Keswick was also the sixth best non-selective state school in the North West.
In 2019 122 A-level students achieved 61.9 per cent A*-B grades. At GCSE level, over 80 per cent of students achieveda grade 4 and above in English and maths every year for the last three years.
Headteacher Simon Jackson said: “I’m delighted that the Sunday Times Parent Power guide reflects the achievements of our talented students and dedicated staff.
“Keswick School’s ethos is to provide excellence and aspiration in a caring and happy school community.
“We appreciate that, in addition to academic achievement, other qualities are equally likely to lead to success later in life.
“It is this ability to seize opportunities and broaden horizons that help our students develop into articulate, confident and successful young people.”
