The London Challenge was a Department for Education and Skills (DfES) initiative, which aimed to raise levels of attainment in London secondary schools and to create a world class education system in the capital. In 2005, London Challenge commissioned the NFER to carry out a survey of Year 7 pupils, Year 10 pupils and teachers from maintained schools in London, and comparison schools in other metropolitan areas. The survey (the second in the series) aimed to gather information on pupils' and teachers' opinions of maintained school provision and the quality of schooling.
