Primary results are ahead of the national average again
Children across Brighton & Hove are once again leaving primary school with above average reading, writing and maths skills, according to the latest national figures.
Provisional Key Stage 2 results show that across the city, 67% of pupils reached the expected combined standard in the three subjects, compared to 64% nationally. Last year’s figures were 64% for the city and 61% nationally.
Reading continues to be the strongest subject for local children. Writing is also above the national figures, and maths is in line with the national average.

Councillor Dan Chapman, chair of Brighton & Hove City Council’s children, young people & skills committee, said: “It’s fantastic to see that our schools are continuing to improve and out-perform the national average.
“Our primary and junior schools work hard to make sure pupils love learning and leave with the skills they need to do well at secondary level.
“I’d like to congratulate all our schools, the local authority team and of course the pupils for their hard work and commitment.”
