SAT Results

We are really proud of our children's high achievements and positive attitudes to their learning. At Herstmonceux School children leave Year 6 having achieved good standards in reading, writing and maths. They make very good progress that is higher than national average, over their time at our school. We place a high value on building a learning community and we are delighted to see that vision reflected in the data below:
