Annual Report: West Midlands

West Midlands

11 Dec 2013 Ofsted

The proportion of good or better primary schools in the West Midlands has increased in 2012/13. Despite this, children in the region still have a lower chance of attending a good or outstanding primary school than in most other areas of the country.

The proportion of good and better secondary schools is broadly in line with levels in England overall and the region has the lowest proportion of inadequate secondary schools. The performance of further education colleges is poor, however, and the West Midlands has the largest proportion of inadequate colleges in the country.
