Nine out of 10 Surrey pupils attend a state secondary school rated outstanding or good, according to latest figures.
Surrey County Council’s analysis of Ofsted inspections shows 90.2% of Surrey pupils go to a secondary school in the top two categories.
Official GCSE figures also confirm that just over two-thirds of pupils achieved five or more A*-C or an equivalent qualification including English and Maths compared to 60% nationally. That puts Surrey in the top 15 performers in England.
Linda Kemeny, Surrey County Council Cabinet Member for Children and Learning, said: “These figures demonstrate that Surrey continues to have some of the best performing state schools in the country.
“With nearly 11,000 pupils, Surrey is by far the largest authority to be ranked in the top 15 and is further evidence of the high standard of education across the county.
“However, we will continue to do all we can to support the hard work and dedication of teachers, pupils and governors at all our schools as they continue to improve results and unlock the full potential of every pupil.”
Surrey has embarked on the biggest school investment programme in its history to provide the 16,000 places needed, 3,000 of which will be created by next September.
