London’s top 100 state primary schools 2023

Due to Covid, there had been no nationally standardised testing (SATS) until summer 2023. As a result, there was no up to date published data of state primary schools in England since 2019. With the publication of SATS results in December 2023, we have finally been able to collate a new ranking of London state primary schools based on their Maths and English results. The schools below are ranked based on the percentage of pupils who achieve a high level of attainment in Writing, Reading and Maths. The average score in Maths and Reading is shown as well.

These statistics tend to be correlated with socioeconomic profile of the intake, so the scores are not always a result of teaching. It is quite common for schools in grammar school areas to perform well, as many children in the class are preparing for 11+ exams. The same is true for primary schools where many children are preparing for 11+ entry to private school.

The top spot this year goes to Earl’s Court Free School Primary in Hammersmith, which – along with the West London Free School Primary (#9) – forms part of the Knowledge Schools Trust and follows a classical, traditional and knowledge based curriculum.
