Fleet's Calthorpe Park is celebrating after topping a list of top performing schools in the News & Mail area.

The Hitches Lane School has come out top in the local GCSE league tables released on Thursday January 23 by the Department for Education.

The school celebrated its best ever GCSE results in August last year, with 79% of pupils gaining five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths.

The latest league tables give the school a value-added (VA) score of 1008.9.

VA scores are calculated by comparing test results for children aged 11 and performance in eight GCSE subjects at 16. Scores exceeding 1,000 are above average and those under 1,000 below average.

Martin Amos, acting headteacher at Calthorpe, was delighted by the 'outstanding' exam results.

"The class of 2013 was an excellent year group, not only academically but also in their contribution and positive influence around the school," he added.

"Our certificate evening at Farnham Maltings in November gave us an opportunity to celebrate individual success and progress, attitudes and dispositions, commitment and talent.

"League tables and comparative data based on attainment are very important but it must also be about producing well-rounded, reflective and responsible young people; this year group demonstrated these qualities in abundance.

"The school is immensely proud of all of them."

Nearby Court Moor School was given a value added score of 996.1, with 76% of pupils gaining five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths, while Yateley School was given a score of 1008.5 and a 75% pass rate.

Frogmore Community School's score was 984.5, with 66% of pupils gaining five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths, while Robert May's School in Odiham, where pupils achieved a 71% pass rate, was given 1005.1.

Schools in Farnborough did not fair as well though, with Cove getting a score of 981.4 and a 51% pass rate, Wavell getting 971.1 and a 44% pass rate and Fernhill getting 968.8 and a 43% pass rate.

The Connaught School in Aldershot was given a score of 983.5, with a 36% pass rate.
