Staff and pupils at the high school in Preesall have already celebrated record GCSE results and a glowing Ofsted report this school year.

Now they have been given another reason to be proud after when they received a letter from Schools Minister David Laws, who singled the establishment out for praise.

The letter confirmed St Aidan’s as one of the most improved schools in England over the past three years.

The school’s main catchment area is Over Wyre, but there is a notable contingent of Fleetwood youngsters at the school, as well as pupils from Thornton and Cleveleys.

Mr Laws stated in his letter: “It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on the excellent improvement in GCSE results over the last few years, from 2011 to 2013.

“Your school has proven to be one of the top 100 in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or move A*-C grade GCSEs, including maths and English.

“The results are a shining testament to the hard work and success of your staff, governors and pupils.

“I would like to offer my thanks to you and all at your school for your pursuit of the highest standards of educational achievement.”

Headteacher Andy Smith said:“It’s great to get national recognition for all the hard work our students and staff have put in over the last couple of years to achieve this fantastic improvement in GCSE results.

“Even more importantly, I am really proud of all of the wonderful things our students do at Saint Aidan’s which don’t count in league tables but which help them to get the most from their school years and prepare for adult life.”
