OFSTED has released the latest annual school league tables, showing the best performing schools in Solihull.
Using the government’s ‘Progress 8′ scoring, the data from the education watchdog shows Solihull is around the average of all local authority areas in England.
The best and worst performing schools are part of the Tudor Grange Academy group – Tudor Grange Solihull and Tudor Grange Kingshurst respectively, which have been approached for comment.
Rankings are based on a Department of Education rethink of schools measurements. The data uses pupils’ results when leaving primary school, predicts their attainable GCSE results, and measures how many pupils achieve those grades.
Critics argued the government’s measure is too simplistic and does not account for schools in deprived areas.
In Warwickshire, four schools were in the top five per cent of schools for England – Alcester academy, Stratford grammar school for girls, King Edward VI in Stratford and Kenilworth School.
Eden Girls’ School, in Coventry city centre, is the third best performing school in the country.
