How are Hereford schools performing?

We connect you to the best teachers who work across several of the best primary and secondary schools in Hereford (some detailed below). This means we can reliably provide you with a local and experienced tutor that fits your needs.

Hereford primary school performance:

The Hereford area has 16 primary schools (one of the top being Marlbrook Primary School with 23% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Children achieve extremely well in both the Nursery and Reception classes because teaching and the quality of care and welfare support are outstanding. Children start school with skills that are much lower than those found typically, especially in language and literacy and social development. They make excellent progress from these very low starting points and standards rise to just below average levels by the start of Year 1. Children do especially well in personal, social and emotional development because of the high expectations of all adults.”

The Hereford local authority has an average of 69% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 12% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).

 

Hereford secondary school performance:

The Hereford area has 8 secondary schools (one of the top being The Bishop of Hereford's Bluecoat School with 50% of pupils achieving grade 5 or above in English and Maths GCSEs).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Most-able pupils are not making good enough progress. Too much of these pupils’ learning is not sufficiently interesting or demanding.”
