Wandsworth schools are doing really well. That makes them very popular. When combined with a very significant growth in the school-aged population, that makes many Wandsworth schools difficult to get in to. Trying to get everyone the place they want is our top concern.
Our critics have suggested our support for free schools comes at the expense of the less well off. Ofsted says otherwise. Their Annual Assessment of Children Services found that children from poor and low income backgrounds get a better education and have better life chances in Wandsworth than in almost any other part of the country.
These pages outline our plans for the future and how we will meet the challenges we face.
