The London Challenge is a partnership between the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), schools and local authorities to raise educational standards in London’s schools. It aims to improve the educational opportunities for London’s young people and to create a world class education system in the capital.
In 2006, DfES commissioned the NFER to carry out a survey of Year 7 pupils, Year 10 pupils and teachers from maintained schools in London.
The survey sought to gather information on pupils’ and teachers’ attitudes, expectations and perceptions of schooling in London. Additionally, schools from other metropolitan areas in England were also sent questionnaires on key questions, in order for the views of pupils and teachers in these areas to be compared with those from London. Findings from this year’s surveys were also compared to the findings of similar surveys conducted in 2004 and 2005.
