Eight secondary schools in Newham are currently rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
According to the regulatory body, which inspects a range of institutions, an outstanding school is highly effective in delivering outcomes that provide exceptionally well for all its pupils’ needs, ensuring children are very well equipped for the next stage of their education.
The judgement grades are outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.

It caters for almost 1,500 pupils aged 11 to 16.

This school opened in Pitchford Street, next to the John F Kennedy Special School, in September 2012.
It was assessed as outstanding in mid-2014.

This girls school in St George's Road can cater for more than 1,300 pupils.
It has been rated outstanding since 2005 and was inspected again four years later.
St Bonaventure's, Forest Gate
Located in Boleyn Road, this boys' school has around 1,300 pupils, according to Ofsted.
It was first rated outstanding in 2006.
Forest Gate Community School, Forest Gate
This school in Forest Lane was rated outstanding following its most recent full inspection in February 2016, before converting to an academy later that year.
The school then had a monitoring visit in February last year but has not had a full inspection since converting.
Ofsted says an outstanding school that has become an academy may be exempt from routine inspection.
Have all schools been rated?
No. Some schools in the borough do not currently have an Ofsted rating, either because they recently opened and haven’t been inspected yet or they haven’t been re-assessed since converting to academies.
