Ranking of London state primary schools 2015

fox primaryThe deadline to apply for state school places in Reception is looming on 15 January, so it is timely that the Department for Education published the 2015 SATS results, which form the basis for primary school league tables, just before the Christmas holidays. Here is a league table of London’s best performing state primary schools ranked by their average point score in the 2015 SATS tests that are carried out in Year 6. Keep in mind that schools with the highest average point score aren’t necessarily “the best” depending on what you’re looking for, but if you are looking for schools with high academic achievement among pupils (for whichever reason, be it quality of teaching or privileged student intake and tutoring for 11+ entrance exams), these are the schools to target. If you can realistically gain a place here is another matter, check here for a round-up of catchment areas of London’s best performing state primary schools. And don’t worry if you don’t see your local primary school listed here, this is just a top 50 list (for example, the well known and outstanding Honeywell and Coleridge School, for example, did not even make the top 50 according to the league tables), and there are many more outstanding and high performing schools.

  1. Hi, your list is not complete as it ignores many high performing primaries in outer London boroughs such as Bromley, Havering, Harrow, and so on. It’s ironic that you included Hounslow but excluded the above.

    I would suggest this list http://www.education.gov.uk/cgi-bin/schools/performance/group.pl?qtype=GOR&superview=pri&view=aat&set=3&tab=2&no=H&sort=ks2_15.taps&ord=desc

    In addition, many people would enquire about non-faith primary schools, especially among the international parents, I would suggest using the above list, click on Filters, which is next to Guidance/Download Data/Share and choose Does not Apply under Religious Denomination. The list would be like this http://www.education.gov.uk/cgi-bin/schools/performance/group.pl?qtype=GOR&superview=pri&view=aat&set=3&sort=ks2_15.taps&ord=desc&tab=2&no=H

  2. I don’t understand this table, there are schools with higher average scores in London that are not on the list. E.g. Hayes School in Bromley – the Telegraph website shows it has an average score of 32.4, yet it’s not in this list whereas schools with a lower score are.

    1. This will be included shortly! The tables are published by local authority, so a London wide ranking needs to be compiled manually, in this case one school has been omitted
