As many schools across the country have struggled to adjust to more challenging exams, one school in the borough is celebrating being top of the table in London.
Scotts Primary School, Bonington Road, Hornchurch, has managed to achieve perfect pass rates for reading, writing and maths tests, along with grammar spelling and punctuation.
The results from the Department for Education, which rank schools based on their key stage 2 results, puts the Hornchurch school top not only in Havering but London too.
Headteacher Jan Taylor is delighted with the school’s progress and has hailed the “ethos of the school” for achieving outstanding results.
She said: “We are extremely proud of these achievements which are the result of the hard work and dedication of all involved in doing the very best for our pupils, including the pupils themselves, staff, parents and governors.

It ends a great year for the school after Scotts was also placed as 52nd in the top 250 state primary schools in England by the Sunday Times last month.
