The early figures are in for Key Stage 2 results and Wandsworth's schools ranked slightly above average.

The Department for Education (DfE) has published its provisional results for 2019 which said that 70 per cent of primary school students in Wandsworth are reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths.

This places the borough slightly above the the London average (69 per cent) and in a tie 15th out of 32 local authorities in the capital.

A spokesman for Wandsworth Council said: "At Key Stage 2 (11 years old), provisional results indicate that Wandsworth standards continue to be strong with 70 per cent of children working at or above the expected standard in reading, writing, and mathematics (combined), compared to the provisional national average of 65 per cent.

"Wandsworth’s combined result was ranked 18th highest out of 151 local authorities nationally, one rank higher than last year and had the 15th highest results in this measure out of the 32 local authorities in London."

Much like other London boroughs, there was a clear difference between the results for boy and girls, only 64 per cent of the former meeting the expected target compared to 75 per cent for the latter.

"2019 also saw an increase in the proportion of children reaching the higher standards in reading, writing and mathematics, moving Wandsworth higher up the national rankings," the council spokesman added.

"Proportions of pupils achieving at the higher standard increased from 13 per cent in 2018 to 15 per cent, increasing Wandsworth’s national ranking from 20th last year to 8th in 2019.

"Wandsworth is ranked 7th in London in this measure."
