A SCHOOL in Hornsey celebrated another positive Ofsted report this week after inspectors judged its business education as "outstanding".
Greig City Academy's result has already prompted calls from other London schools hoping to find the secret of their success.
In the report, inspectors said the "overall effectiveness of business education, including the development of students' economic and business understanding and financial capability was judged to be outstanding".
The report also highlighted the positive relationships between the staff and students at the Hornsey High Street school and praised the teachers for their broad subject knowledge, variety of teaching styles and good use of IT.
