League tables show Redbridge secondary schools performing above national average

A hundredper cent of pupils at Ilford County High, in Fremantle Road, Barkingside, and 99 per cent at Woodford County High, High Road, Woodford, have achieved five A* to C grades at GCSE, putting them head and shoulders above other secondary schools in the borough.

GCSE passes in English, maths, two science subjects, a language and history or geography.
