Education has been transformed in Lambeth in recent years, thanks to the close working between the council and schools. We have invested heavily in our school buildings working with partners to create world-class learning environments. Many of our schools are among the very best in the country with 96 per cent of our schools rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
