Key Stage 2 pupils show they are top of the class

September 14, 2016

Youngsters in Wolverhampton are top of the class when it comes to performance at Key Stage 2.

 

Results for 2015-16 published this month show that a higher proportion of 11-year-olds reach the expected level in reading, writing and mathematics in Wolverhampton than anywhere else in the Black Country.

 

Some 52% of pupils made the grade in Wolverhampton, ranking the city first across Birmingham and the Black Country and second only to Solihull in the West Midlands. The regional average is 49%.

 

This year's performance also ranks Wolverhampton on a par with the national average, not including independent school pupils.

 

Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "This is a tremendous result for our city's schools, and my congratulations go to pupils, teachers and parents on their success.

 

"As a council, we are working hard with our schools to raise standards of education and it is really beginning to bear fruit – with increased performance at every Key Stage in the last academic year.

 

“However, we won’t rest on our laurels and continue to press hard so that our children are given the opportunity to experience the very best standards of education in Wolverhampton.”
