Two Farnham schools have dominated the Department for Education’s annual primary school performance table based on Key Stage Two SATs results for 2022/23.

South Farnham and Highfield South Farnham, both Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated members of the South Farnham Educational Trust, achieved exceptional results, with South Farnham named as the top performing school in Surrey and Hampshire.

An incredible 100 per cent of 134 pupils from South Farnham met the expected standard for reading, writing and maths with 48 per cent of those achieving the standard at greater depth. 

This compares to the national average of 60 per cent meeting the standard and eight per cent at greater depth.

Highfield South Farnham has been recognised as the seventh highest performing school in Surrey, with 86 per cent of pupils meeting the expected standard whilst 13 per cent accomplished greater depth.

This marks a five per cent increase on last year’s results.
