A primary school in Mill End has been rated as one of the best schools in Hertfordshire.

Arnett Hills JMI School, Berry Lane, has been rated in the top ten primary schools.

The ranking is based on the performance of the year 6 children who took tests in reading, grammar, punctuation, spelling and maths.

The school’s headteacher, Tracey Ali, said: “The outcomes are a reflection of the hard work of the children and the dedication of their teachers from reception to Year 6.

"Although the children have moved on to a variety of secondary schools many of them have been back to visit in their new uniforms.

“They have settled in well and have embraced the challenges, continuing their love of learning.

“As well as striving to do their personal best academically, the children at Arnett Hills are taught a wide curriculum and are encouraged to express themselves through art, music, dance, cookery, drama and a variety of sporting activities.”

Ms Ali said the result caps off a good year for the school, with highlights including year 5 pupils taking part in the Shakespeare School's Festival and pupils also took part in the Chess Classic competition in Kensington.
