BRILLIANT borough children have scored top marks in their Sats tests.

BRILLIANT borough children have scored top marks in their Sats tests.

Primary pupils are well above the national average in the three core subjects of English, maths and science. League tables published on Wednesday show Solihull as the top-performing borough in the West Midlands.

In maths, 84 per cent of youngsters achieved the expected level or above. In English the figure was 86 per cent and in science it was a whopping 93 per cent.

Three schools - Oak Cottage Primary, St Patrick’s C of E Primary and Berkswell C of E Primary - scored 100 per cent in all three.

Councillor Ken Meeson, cabinet member for education, children and young people, said: “Once again the young people of Solihull have excelled and made us proud.

“I would like to say a big well done to all of the pupils and thank our teachers, parents and governors for their continued support.”

Key Stage 2 tests - often called Sats - are taken by children in their final year of junior school and cover the three core subjects.
