    Pupils and staff at Houlton School are celebrating following the news that they have been awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM) - joining an exclusive network of 120 of the best non-selective state schools across the UK for the quality of educational experience on offer. In order to gain the coveted accreditation, the school took part in an entirely pupil-lead assessment process, where pupils were tasked with completing a series of challenges to showcase what makes their school World Class.
