Overall faith schools account for 37 per cent of all primaries.

Faith schools account for almost half of the top 500 state primaries in the annual Parent Power tables.

Of the 48 schools in the top 100, 25 are Catholic, 19 are Church of England, two are Jewish, one is Muslim and one is Hindu.

Overall faith schools account for 37 per cent of all primaries.

The four faith schools in the state primary top ten include St Bede’s Roman Catholic primary in Marskeby-the-Sea, near Redcar, one of the UK’s poorest areas.

Joanna Wilson, the school’s headteacher, said: ‘Everything we do in school is rooted around the Gospel values.

‘We talk to children all the time about how they are behaving and how to treat each other.’

Research for the tables by The Sunday Times put Christ Church primary school in Chelsea, West London, top of the faith schools.

The CofE school beat every fee-paying prep school apart from Seaton House in Sutton, South London.

The study is based on the performance of 11-year-olds in the new, harder national Sats in maths, English, spelling, punctuation and grammar.
