A Nailsea school is delighted to have retained its good rating following an Ofsted inspection.

An inspector visited Kingshill Church School, in Pound Lane, on April 11 and praised the headteacher for having high aspirations for pupils and staff.

The report said ‘highly effective teaching’ has resulted in consistently strong outcomes for pupils.

Kingshill Church School has made it into the top 20 per cent of schools for progress in reading and writing for the past two years.
