Hull and East Riding schools have seen a year of record results, according to new figures.

In a bumper year for Hull in particular, the number of 11-year-olds meeting their targets in reading, writing and maths tests hit an all-time high – while the final part of the £400 million scheme in Hull was completed.

Ofsted awarded Sirius Academy in west Hull’s Anlaby Park Road South an outstanding rating, noting a steady rise in quality for the academy since it replaced Pickering High School Sports College.

Hull City Council’s Vanessa Harvey-Samuel said it is important that forward motion continues with regards to schools, and added she was happy that this had taken place in most key indicators.

The learning and skills manager said 72% of the authority’s schools were either good or outstanding according to Ofsted, the highest total ever.

Next year, she is targeting the national level of 81%.
