To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which two regions had (a) the highest performing state schools and (b) the lowest performing state schools in the latest period for which figures are available; and what assessment he has made of the possible relationship between school performance and average house prices in an area. (220688)

There is no single measure of overall school performance across the different key stages. The individual indicators for each key stage are published at school and local authority level in the achievement and attainment tables found in the House of Commons Library.

No assessment has been made of the possible relationship between school performance and average: house prices, in an area.
