The number of schools in Stockton rated good or outstanding has risen over the past 3 years.
Back in 2014, secondary schools in the area were told 'you must do better' by school inspectorate Ofsted.
Figures at the time revealed only 46 per cent of secondary pupils were being taught at a school rated 'good' or 'outstanding'.
New figures reported to the Council’s Cabinet reveal that number of secondary pupils were being taught at a school rated 'good' or 'outstanding' has almost doubled to 91 per cent.
Councillor Ann McCoy, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said:
In primary schools, where Ofsted performance has been consistently strong, 95 per cent of pupils attend schools rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.
There was more good news in the shape of the improving performance of disadvantaged primary school children, who are closing the gap on their non-disadvantaged peers.
