91% of Islington schools have been rated as good or outstanding in their most recent Ofsted inspections, with more than a quarter being rated as outstanding.
This is higher than the London and England averages and includes 94% of primary schools and all nursery and special schools in Islington being judged good or outstanding.
As reflected across much of the country, Islington’s 2020 provisional GCSE result benchmarks have improved on last year, despite changes to the way they were graded due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
More than half of pupils achieved a strong pass in English and mathematics – 52% achieving a grade 5 or above, compared to 44% in 2019 – while the average Attainment 8 score per pupil is 4.99, up from 4.69 last year. The EBacc average point score was 4.4, up from 4.2.
