EXAM results at Solihull primary schools are among the best in the country according to the latest league tables.
Figures released on Tuesday show that the borough’s 10-11-year-olds are performing well above the national average.
Seventy nine per cent of youngsters achieved at least level 4 in their English and Maths SATs.
When local authorities are ranked by performance then Solihull is placed 6th in the country.
This put the borough at the top of the pile in the West Midlands. In Birmingham and Coventry, 68 per cent of pupils achieved level 4 in English and Maths.
Earlier in the year Coun Ken Meeson, cabinet member for children and young people, praised the hard work of Solihull schoolchildren.
SATs exams are taken in English, Maths and Science by Year 6 pupils across the country.
Level 4 is the expected grade for children of that age.
