A SECONDARY school in Warrington has been named as one of the region's best.

The Sunday Times has compiled a list of all of the best schools in the north west of England, and one Warrington school has stood out.

Lymm High School has topped the list of Warrington secondary schools, and has been ranked in the top five in the north west.

The secondary school, off Oughtrington Lane, has been rated as the fourth-best comprehensive high school in the region.

Nationally, Lymm High School has been ranked as the country's 316th best secondary school.

This ranking comes from the Sunday Times Parent Power Guide, which is now in its 31st edition.

The fully searchable national database of over 1,000 schools by name, local authority, town and postcode, is available online from today, December 1, and as a print supplement with the Sunday Times on Sunday, December 3. 

Helen Davies, editor of Parent Power, said: “The educational landscape continues to be challenging across both the state and independent sectors, and this is the first true assessment of post-pandemic exam results.

"We believe these rankings – and all the additional information on offer in Parent Power – provide parents with a more reliable guide to academic achievement in schools today. 

“The guide showcases academic excellence but also celebrates schools who may not be right at the top but are rising, innovating and helping pupils flourish.

"Being a teenager is hard enough, and the past few years since Covid-19 have made life even harder. It is heartening to highlight the achievements of so many students and schools across the UK. 

“This year Parent Power includes details on extracurricular clubs, wellbeing initiatives and school lunch menus – chicken katsu seems to be the dish of the day.”
