A school has been celebrating after it was ranked as one of the top independent preparatory schools in the UK by The Sunday Times.

Reddiford School in Pinner placed tenth in the paper’s latest ‘Top 100’ list thanks to its excellent SATs results.

The table was calculated based on the Year 6 pupils’ scores in reading, grammar and maths in the most recent round of tests.

Head teacher Jean Batt said: “We are very pleased that Reddiford’s achievements have been recognised but it is the small targets that the children achieve individually day to day that bring the most pleasure to teachers and parents.”

She added that the school is always proud of its pupils’ achievements, whether it comes in the form of test results or securing places at their preferred secondary schools.
