The 8 ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’ London primary and secondary schools rated in 2023

These primary and secondary schools with high Ofsted ratings announced in 2023 are spread all around the capital.

In a city the size of London, as you might expect, there is a wide disparity in the ratings of different schools.

Ofsted rates each educational institution on a four-point scale from ‘inadequate’ and ‘requires improvement’, to ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’.

All schools are judged on their overall effectiveness, quality of education, behaviours and attitudes, levels of personal development, and leadership and management.

Westbridge Academy in Battersea was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted during its visit in November 2022. The report published by Ofsted reads:

“Staff and pupils are caring towards each other and, together, create a strong sense of community in the school. Leaders know the pupils and their families well.”

It continues: “Leaders have identified areas where support is most needed and addressed them promptly. They have provided pupils with a stable environment where they continue to grow in their learning.”
