Scheme to improve London schools is working – Ofsted

The London Challenge school improvement programme set up in 2003, has continued to improve outcomes for pupils in London schools at a faster rate than nationally, according to a report launched by Ofsted today.

Secondary schools in London continue to improve more than those in the rest of England in terms of their exam results. Data on pupil progress show that primary schools who joined London Challenge in 2008 are also improving faster than those nationally.
