Introduction

Plymouth has a diverse educational estate with 98 schools and 174 childcare settings including child minders, school nurseries and private settings.

In terms of the quality of provision, 100 per cent of children attend a good or better nursery; 84 per cent of pupils attend good or outstanding primary schools and 65 per cent of pupils are educated in secondary schools judged to be at least good. 100 per cent of special schools are rated good or outstanding.

Educational standards over recent years in Plymouth have shown some variation. However, in general, attainment has been below average at all key stages and by the end of KS4 (GCSE), results remain below the national average in terms of attainment and progress.

Plymouth City Council’s Plan for Education to 2020 sets out how the Council and its partners will improve education outcomes and provide vibrant, effective and modern educational settings.
