Grove Park & Belmont among top primary schools in the UK

Grove Park and Belmont primary schools in Chiswick are among the top state primary schools in the country, according to the Times & Sunday Times guide Parent Power 2020.

The survey looks at the top 2,000 schools in the UK. Grove Park was ranked 79 and was rated Outstanding at its last Ofsted. Mayor of Hounslow Tony Louki was at the school on Friday to celebrate their Charities week, in which each year group learns about a local charity,

Belmont  just missed the Top 100 bracket, coming 101. It too was rated Outstanding at its last Ofsted. The school’s choir will give its annual Christmas concert with the Hogarth Singers this Saturday at St Michael & All Angels Church at 6.00pm. 

The Times / Sunday Times rankings are based on Sats results, but both schools have a lot more going on than that narrowness of focus would suggest.

Considering there are more than 16,000 state funded primary schools in England, that’s not bad going.
