Suffolk schools have entered a partnership with those in Hackney in a bid to improve results in the county.
A report by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) points to improvements that were achieved in schools in the London borough and argues that gains can be achieved if a similarly ambitious and focused approach is taken in Suffolk.
Hackney Council's cabinet member for Children's Services Rita Krishna said their school results had been improved by a "relentless focus on fundamentals and having very high ambition and aspirations for all children and young people."
