How different areas performed
Success and struggle seem to be more entrenched than ever in the two local authorities at either end of this year's primary school tables.

A league based on pupils' performances in their "Sats" tests is headed by Richmond upon Thames with the inner London borough of Hackney last.

Both have held those places for five years in a row.

The table below shows LAs ranked on their aggregate scores (AGG).

The second column of figures is the average points score (APS).

The third column shows the average of the contextual value added (CVA) measure schools achieved.
