Ofsted says Doncaster pupils disadvantaged in secondary education

education experts have called it “unacceptable” that children in Doncaster have only half the chance of going to a good secondary school as pupils in other parts of the country.

In the annual Ofsted report released today, Doncaster area secondary schools were placed among the bottom ten performers in the country.

Just 43 per cent of secondary school pupils in the borough are in schools which are rated as good or outstanding - compared to a regional average of 67 per cent.
