GCSE results at Sutton's secondary schools are almost 20 per cent better than the national average, according to new statistics.
In Sutton 77 per cent of pupils at the borough's secondary schools got five or more A* to C grades in GCSE subjects including maths and English compared to a national average of 59.2 per cent.
The disparity has been revealed after the Department for Education released the final figures from last year's exams this week.
The borough's results have got better each year for the past three years while nationally results got slightly worse this year.
Sutton's top performing schools are Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington High School for Girls where all the students who took GCSEs got five or more A* to C grades in subjects including maths and English.
