All eleven secondary schools in Richmond upon Thames are now graded 'good' or 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
This is an improvement from 2018 when three of the borough’s secondary schools Requires Improvement' ratings.
Teddington School was one of the borough’s schools that recently improved its rating from 'requires improvement' to 'good' after an inspection in November 2021. The school was recognised for its inclusive and supportive classroom environment where pupils enjoy their lessons, feel happy and are safe.

"This is a fantastic achievement for the borough’s secondary schools. It goes to show how hard working the school leaders and staff members and I want to thank them for going above and beyond to deliver a education to young people in Richmond upon Thames. Well done to everyone involved!"
