Established by former minister, David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s September release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

Boldon School features alongside the Prime Minister and the other outstanding schools in the document that looks back on the year in schools and Westminster.

The main aim of the review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector.

Elizabeth Hayes, headteacher at the Boldon Colliery school, said: “I am absolutely delighted that Boldon School features in The Parliamentary Review. It is a real tribute to the hard work and dedication of every adult and student connected to our school.

“Our exam results have risen consistently over the last three years, and the Parliamentary Review has given Boldon School the national recognition it truly deserves.”

The Parliamentary Review is sent to more than half a million leading policymakers and the articles in the review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.

Daniel Yossman, director of the review, said: “Boldon School and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s review possible.

“Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s review will reach every corner of the British economy.

“It’s always a real joy to hear from policymakers who tell me that something they have read in the review has had an effect on their thinking.

“It is my belief that innovation is contagious.”
