Croydon school league tables released: Full results table

SECONDARY education in Croydon continues to improve according to new league tables published today (Thursday).
The percentage of students achieving five or more 'good' GCSEs - A* to C grades including English and maths - increased slightly last year, from 61 per cent to 62.2 per cent.
Oasis Academy Coulsdon and Thomas More Catholic School, in Purley, were the borough's most improved schools, with 18 per cent more pupils meeting the Government's benchmark level.
Westwood College for Girls, in Upper Norwood, was the only school to fall below the new floor standard of 40 per cent. It follows a disastrous Ofsted report, published last week, which placed the school into special measures.
Westwood is in the process of being converted into an academy potentially sponsored by the Harris Federation, which saw all three of its secondary schools in Croydon post improved results.
St Mary's High, in Woburn Road, West Croydon, saw the percentage of its pupils leave with five good GCSEs drop from 51 to 40 per cent, narrowly avoiding falling into the category of failing secondaries likely to be turned into academies.
Riddlesdown Collegiate, in Purley, also posted disappointing results, dropping ten per cent.
Croydon's overall results marked a fourth consecutive year of improvement, with 51.9 per cent of pupils reaching the required standard in 2009 compared to 62.2 per cent this year. The national average this year was 58.8 per cent.
The full table can be seen below.
