Harrow Rated Joint-6th in Primary Education

New inspection results from OFSTED have revealed that Harrow is rated as joint 6th in the country for providing the largest percentage of children with a good quality primary education. 89% of primary school pupils in Harrow attend schools rated good our outstanding by the schools’ inspectorate – tying Harrow at 6th place nationally with Islington and Knowsley, Merseyside.

For the Conservatives, shadow portfolio holder for Schools, Cllr. Janet Mote said: “We have known for many years that Harrow is served by a number of excellent schools, and this new report proves that to be the case. Congratulations are due to the staff and pupils of all our schools, not just for maintaining such a high standard, for also for their constant striving for improvement. I know a number of our schools very well, and I’m sure there will be no resting on laurels from their point of view.”

Cllr Mote added: “The improvement of our schools is something Harrow Council is committed to on a cross-party basis, so I know the present Labour administration will do all it can to ensure these high standards are both maintained and built on.”
