Pupils attending primary schools in Richmond upon Thames have topped the national league tables yet again following publication of the 2011 Key Stage 2 (SATs) results on Thursday (15 December).
Eighty-seven per cent of pupils gained level 4 or above in both English and maths – higher than any other borough in the country. The borough also had the highest percentage of pupils achieving top grade, with 48 per cent gaining level 5 in English and 53 per cent achieving level 5 in maths.
These results maintain the borough pupils’ long held position at the top of the national league tables.
Cllr Paul Hodgins, Cabinet Member for Schools on Richmond Council, said: “The results confirm the provisional results we saw in the summer – that borough-wide, our schools are performing better than anywhere else in the country. It demonstrates both first class standards and real strength in depth.
“My congratulations go to the pupils, teaching staff and governors for their achievements. I would also like to thank local parents for the huge amount of time they put into their children’s education; it is what makes the crucial difference to our schools’ success and marks our borough out from others.”
