'Poor pupils do better in city schools'

Disadvantaged children living in coastal towns in England are less likely to do well at school than those from the big cities, according to Ofsted's chief inspector.

Disadvantaged children living in rural England are less likely to do well at school than those from the big cities, says Ofsted's chief inspector.

England's Chief Inspector of Schools, Sir Michael Wilshaw, says the best teachers should be offered incentives to work in areas where children from poorer backgrounds need help to perform as well as those in cities.
