A new league table published by the Education Policy Institute ranks Merton Council’s maintained secondary schools among the best for pupil improvement in England.
Ranking third out of all councils and academy trusts in England, Merton’s pupils are benefiting from the borough’s dedicated teachers who work with the young people and their families to ensure they achieve the best of their ability.
All Merton Council’s maintained secondary schools, Rutlish School, Ricards Lodge High School, Raynes Park High School, Ursuline High School and Wimbledon College, are Ofsted-rated outstanding or good and have seen some of the fastest improving GCSE results in the country in recent years.
Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis said: “We are very proud in Merton to see our maintained secondary schools among the best in England for pupil improvement. Credit must go to our teaching staff who are immensely dedicated to improving young people’s lives and opening up a world of opportunity to them through education. Credit also goes to the young people themselves who work hard throughout the year to achieve their very best. It is wonderful seeing all our maintained schools continue to go from strength to strength.”
