Cronton Primary School is performing above the national average of pupils meeting the expected standard of results, which is 61%.  Performance recorded for Cronton Primary School pupils was 87%.

Sylvia Thomson, Head Teacher at Cronton Primary School, said “This is a fantastic testament to the hard work of our staff, governors and most importantly our pupils. We provide high quality education to help our pupils to achieve their potential.  I’m extremely proud that the school has been recognised in this way. Well done!”
