Evening Standard Article

Central Foundation Boys’ School was recently featured in the London Evening Standard as one of the top ten schools in the city for our outcomes for economically deprived students.

The article comes after the discovery that state school pupils from poor backgrounds do better in London than in other parts of Britain despite the city’s high deprivation.

The report was produced by a think tank called Centre Forum and is based on the Governments National Database and official measures of poverty covering more than 600,000 pupils. Under the most improved section Central Foundation Boys’ School appears in the top ten schools with the improvement rate calculated by comparing pupils’ predicted achievements at the age of five with their GCSE results at 16.

The article states that researchers say good teaching could explain the success of London pupils, so we are particularly proud of the ‘over-achievement’ of our students and the hard work of our teaching staff.
