A growing number of people who move to Battersea are attracted to the area by its proximity to central London and lively facilities nearby. But a growing number of new residents settle here because of the high standard of schools on offer for their children. In fact, nearly every school in Wandsworth is rated either a good or outstanding by education standards watchdog Ofsted.

An annual report into the quality of schools and teaching in London by Ofsted reveals that 96% of the borough’s primary schools were classed as either good or outstanding in 2013/14. At the time, this was the second highest best quality score in London and a two percentage point improvement on the previous year. In 2013/14, Wandsworth’s primary schools achieved some of the best combined Key Stage 2 reading, writing and maths results in England. And the proportion of children progressing by at least two levels between Key Stages 1 and 2 was among the highest in the country.  

The standard of education at secondary school level is equally impressive, according to Ofsted. It reports that the proportion of Wandsworth’s secondary schools rated as good or outstanding improved year on year with a 1% rise to 94% - the fourth best score recorded.   Reacting to the positive school report, Wandsworth Council’s education spokesman Kathy Tracey said: “To be judged either good or outstanding a school really has to pull out all the stops. The quality of teaching has to be excellent, pupils must achieve great results, standards of behaviour must be exemplary and behind the scenes the school must be properly and efficiently managed and enjoy strong leadership from the headteacher, senior staff and governors.”
