Richmond primary schools dominate The Times Top 500 Primary Schools, December 2019.

There are currently over 20,000 primary schools in the UK. Every year The Times newspaper looks at each school and ranks them based on their combined average score achieved in the reading, maths, grammar, punctuation and spelling key stage 2 tests.

Sixteen primary schools from Richmond Upon Thames have made it to the Times Top 500 Primary Schools in the UK list.

Cllr Penny Frost, Chair of the Education and Children’s Services Committee, said: “Once again, our borough’s schools are showing that we are best in class…quite literally. It shows, that despite tight financial constraints, our schools continue to deliver first-class education and strive to continue to do the best for every pupil.”
