Latest figures show the borough’s schools are performing well at Key Stage Two level

Bromley is achieving some of the best primary education results in the country, new figures reveal.

The latest results for Key Stage Two (KS2) tests at the expected standard or above show the borough came second in the reading and maths tests, and third in combined reading, writing and mathematics.

Some 66 per cent of combined reading, writing and mathematics results were at the expected standard or above - just one percentage point behind Kensington and Chelsea, which took joint first place.

Bromley children also performed well in grammar and writing, coming joint fourth and joint sixth respectively.

Those reaching a high standard in the KS2 tests or greater depth in writing also performed well.

At this level, the reading test and the grammar test results all reached fifth in the country, while for mathematics in this section, Bromley children were seventh.

Executive member for education councillor Peter Fortune said: “These are really pleasing results which demonstrate the good educational standards being achieved by children in Bromley.

“I should like to commend our local teaching staff for their commitment to aiming high and to congratulate all the pupils who have clearly worked hard this year to perform so well in these key tests.”
