Primary school pupils in Hammersmith & Fulham have done the borough proud in English and maths this year according to the latest results.
Results of the new tests in English and maths for seven to 11-year-olds, brought in by the government this summer, showed pupils have achieved well compared to other London boroughs and national averages.
“Congratulations to everyone who has received their results,” said Cllr Sue Macmillan, H&F Cabinet Member for Children and Young People.
“We know pupils and teachers really work well together, helping children reach their potential across all subjects. These results are a good reflection of the excellent results they achieve in English and maths.
“This is why we are determined to protect funding to H&F's schools, as it is making a huge and positive difference.”
More than 60 per cent of seven to 11 year-olds in the borough achieved as expected in reading, writing and maths – seven per cent above the national average. Their success ranks H&F third in inner London and 11th nationally.
Eight per cent of pupils exceeded expectations, ranking H&F fourth in inner London and 10th nationally.
Looking at the subjects separately, 73 per cent of youngsters achieved their expected performance in reading, compared to 66 per cent nationally; 76 per cent in writing, compared to 74 per cent nationally; and 79 per cent in maths, compared with 70 per cent nationally.
The percentage of children achieving above expected results in each subject were also above the national average.
H&F pupils were five per cent above the national average in reading at 24 per cent; 18 per cent in writing, compared to a national average of 15 per cent; and 19 per cent in maths, two per cent above the national average.
