​A new report "Understanding the success of London’s schools" argues that the improved attainment of schools in London is largely due to the positive impact of children 
of recent immigrants to the UK, including those who are learning English as an additional language.
 
" the basis for the London performance is the ethnic composition of its school population".
 
"... integrated multi-ethnic school systems can be very productive, allowing the ethnic minority pupils to achieve the grades they seek, and (potentially) raising the 
scores of white British pupils as well"
