Schools Minister Vernon Coaker congratulated pupils, teachers and schools as the new figures published today, Wednesday 13th January 2010, show another year of improvements.

Today’s final 2009 national, local authority and school-level GCSE results show:

• London schools are top performers out of the English regions with 54.0 per cent of pupils getting five good GCSEs including English and maths – compared to 29.9 per cent in 1997 when it was amongst the bottom

• In line with other countries, girls continue to outperform boys, but the gap has narrowed by 0.7 percentage points with 54.4 percent of girls achieving five or more grades A*-C compared to 47.1 percent of boys
