Buckswood defends its poor place in league

Have your say

GUESTLING private school Buckswood has defended being ranked second from bottom in the GCSE league table for Sussex.

Buckswood saw just 34% of pupils gaining five or more A* - C grade GCSE’s , including maths and English. Lowest in Sussex was William Parker at Hastings with 33% and that has been labelled as a failing school by OFSTED.

A spokesperson for Buckswood said: “It is widely accepted that the current discredited league tables work against internationally minded Schools like Buckswood for a number of different reasons. That is why we direct the growing number of prospective parents to our impressive Ofsted reports.”
