The 'most improved' schools
This is a list of the 100 "most improved" primary schools in England, issued by the Department for Education and Skills.

The columns of figures show the aggregate score out of 300 in the Key Stage 2 tests for the years 2003 - 2006, and the overall increase.

The key to inclusion is consistency: a school's results have to have improved each year (or at least stayed the same). Other schools might have had a greater absolute rise but with a dip along the way.
