Students in Hertfordshire are receiving a top-class education, as confirmed in this year’s Sunday Times Schools Guide.
The Sunday Times singled out the nation’s top 500 secondary schools in its recently published 2020 guide and 25 Hertfordshire schools were included, an impressive five per cent of the UK total.
Hertfordshire had eight schools listed including schools in Chorleywood and Watford, as well as others across the county. Of special note, one Hertfordshire school was named as the South East State Secondary School of the Decade.
Cabinet Member for Education, Libraries and Localism, Cllr Terry Douris said: “Hertfordshire has some of the best education facilities in the UK, so these results are testament to the hard work of school leaders, teachers, support staff, governing bodies and pupils, huge congratulations to them all.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to applaud the fantastic efforts of all our schools who work so hard to ensure each child reaches their potential. We are proud of their dedication and achievements, particularly during this very challenging year.”
