Knowle West schools shine again

Primary school league tables for Year 6 SATs results have shown Knowle West’s Greenfield E-Act Academy to be one of the highest attaining schools in Bristol again. 

 Figures released by the Department for Education in December showing pupil performance in last year’s Key Stage 2 exams have revealed an improvement across Bristol primary schools – with 63 % meeting the expected standard. 

 Greenfield was the seventh highest attaining school in the city with 84 % of pupils achieving the expected grade. It has made the top ten for the past three years. 

 At Ilminster Avenue E-Act Academy 67 % of pupils achieved the expected standard – also above the national average. The school has performed consistently well in the past few years and in the 2017 results came third in the city.

One South Bristol School which has turned it around is Perry Court E-Act Academy in Hengrove which went from 16% up to 69% under new Head Teacher Richard Healey. 

 He said: “…The community – our parents and families – have really been part of this journey. It’s fantastic.”
