St. Stephen's CofE Primary School tops the local table with 100% of pupils achieving Level 4 and above in both Maths and Science. St. Stephen's also tops the league in English with 93% of those tested gaining Level 4 and above. This is closely followed by the Good Shepherd RC Primary School, where 92% of children achieved Level 4 and above in English.

At both St. Stephen's and Bentworth Primary School, 100% of students had made the expected amount of progress in maths.

The tables reflect the results from Key Stage 2 tests taken by year six children in May 2009.

Key Stage 2 tests are taken at the end of the Key Stage 2 programme of study, normally in Year 6 when children are 11 years old. Children have to be assessed at working at level 3 or above to take the tests. The subjects covered are English, mathematics and science.
