A SCHOOL has been praised for its pupils attaining "exceptionally high standards".

The comment came in a report after an Ofsted inspection at St Mary's RC School in Royston.

The inspector John Messer said: "In all classes pupils are bubbling with enthusiasm for learning."

Mr Messer said the pupils' personal development was "good" and their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development was "outstanding".

He continued that pupils were "courteous, well behaved, and sensitive to the needs of others".

Mr Messer recognised, too, that role played by the staff. "Teamwork is strongly encouraged and this is a key feature of the school's success."
