MOST of the schools in Hammersmith and Fulham have improved their GCSE and A-level results, according to the latest league tables.

The annual report was published by the Department for Education on Wednesday and showed that 68 per cent of pupils in the borough achieved five or more GCSE grades in maths and English.

That is a rise from 64 per cent in 2009 and well above the 35 per cent required target.

The best performing schools were Lady Margaret School with 90 per cent and Sacred Heart High School, in Fulham, with 94 per cent while Phoenix High School, in Shepherd's Bush continues to struggle with 44 per cent.

A-level tables are topped by Latymer Upper School and St Paul's Girl's School as the majority of borough colleges narrowly topped last year's achievements.
