Tarporley High School is considered to be one of the top 90 non-selective state schools for sustained improvement.

The Rt Hon David Laws MP has written to Sarah Lee, Head Teacher of Tarporley High School and Sixth Form College to congratulate the school on the sustained improvement it has shown in its GCSE results.

Over the last 3 years, the percentage of pupils achieving 5 A*-C including English and maths at the school, rated Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2014, has consistently increased. This places the school in the top 90 non selective schools in the country for the greatest sustained improvement.
In 2014, the school saw its highest GCSE results to date, with 35% of all grades awarded at A*/A and an impressive 86% students achieving A*-C in both English and maths GCSEs.

The Rt Hon David Laws also said, "I would like to congratulate your staff, governors and pupils for their hard work and success ... and for continuing their drive towards the highest standards of educational achievement."
