Tower Hamlets schools beat national average

The most recent figures also show the borough’s best performance ever for 18 year olds and a strong improvement in attainment for vocational subjects.

Tower Hamlets cabinet was presented with new figures on Tuesday highlighting a continuing trend in rising educational attainment.

In spite of considerable social and economic challenges, and national changes including fewer options to re-sit exams and the deletion of some subjects, the council continues to outperform both neighbouring boroughs and the national average.

Three quarters of pupils achieved the expected level of progress between key stages 2 and 4 in maths, while 80 per cent met English progression targets. This is seven points above the national average and an 18 per cent improvement on the borough’s own figures from 2009.
