Mrs Stoner, Principal of St Georges Church of England Foundation School, stated "The League Tables the Government has just published bears little resemblance to reality. The percentage quoted for St George's Church of England Foundation School refers to "first entry" NOT " best entry". Students at St George's performed particularly well this year with over 50% of students achieving 5A*-Cs including English and Mathematics". Mrs Stoner also added " We have a moral purpose to ensure we give our students the very best possible opportunities to achieve and we will continue to do so despite the changes in the way the government represents results. This year the League Tables only serves to demoralise students and staff alike rather than to celebrate the achievements of our young people."
