Statement on London's performance in school league tables released today

  • By London Councils

Statement on London's performance in school league tables released today (Thursday 29 January):

Councillor Peter John, London Councils’ Executive member for children, skills and employment, said: “London schools are still out-performing other regions, following the recent exam and curriculum changes which have had an impact on results across the country.

“This is a testimony to the hard work of teachers, pupils and parents, and emphasises how important it is that every effort is made to support rising education standards.

“This could include giving London boroughs a greater leadership role to help improve performance and to challenge those areas where children are not fulfilling their full potential.”
