City of London Academy Islington has been given the best rated Outstanding by Ofsted – the highest possible grade.
The school in Prebend Street was recognised for “leaving no child behind”, its outstanding outcomes and its exceptional pupil progress.
Inspectors who visited last month found “teachers use information about their pupils to plan excellent lessons” and “they facilitate pupils’ learning by providing outstanding guidance.”
The report said since head Clare Verga arrived in 2012, CoLAI has been transformed and rated leadership and management Outstanding.
Ms Verga said: “I am delighted that we have been recognised as an outstanding academy in the work we do in serving our young people.
