Almost all schools in Tower Hamlets are good or outstanding, Ofsted figures show.
Out of the 100 schools inspected in the borough, 38 are rated outstanding and 59 good, as of October 31.
Ofsted, the schools regulator, inspects every new school within three years of being funded.
Inspectors judge education providers on the effectiveness of the leadership, quality of teaching and learning, personal development and welfare, and the outcomes for learners.
If a school is rated as inadequate it will be re-inspected within 15 months, and between one and two years if it requires improvement.
