Secondary schools in Torbay have been put at the head of the class in newly published league tables.

According to Ofsted, 100% of pupils in the Bay are attending a senior school which has been judged to be good or outstanding.

Torbay is one of only nine local authorities out of 150 to have got full marks.

The leagues tables, published for the first time in the annual report of Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw, did not contain universally good news for young people in the area.

According to the report, only 70% of children attend primary schools which are judged to be good or excellent.

Overall, Torbay was highlighted in the report for the quality of its early years provision which was said to be in the top ten.

Torbay Council executive lead for children, schools and families, Councillor Chris Lewis, said the successful School Improvement Partnership would continue to be developed "so we can drive up standards even further to offer our children and young people the highest quality of teaching and education possible".
