The majority of Islington’s schools are “good” or “outstanding”, according to the most recent Ofsted inspection results.
Out of the borough’s 63 schools, 16 (25 per cent) were rated outstanding and 42 (67pc) were good.
Only one school was inadequate and four were declared by inspectors to be in need of improvement.
However, the number of outstanding schools has dropped compared with the previous year when there were 18, while no schools were deemed inadequate then.
The number of schools rated as good has increased by one compared with 2012’s results and the number of schools requiring improvement has dropped by one.
