A quarter of secondary schools in Barking and Dagenham are inadequate or require improvement, Ofsted figures show.
Out of the 12 secondary schools inspected in the borough, two require improvement and one is inadequate, the worst rating for a school.
There is one rated outstanding, and eight are classed as good, according to the latest inspections, as of October 31.
Ofsted, the schools regulator, inspects every new school within three years of opening.
Inspectors judge education providers on the effectiveness of their leadership, quality of teaching and learning, personal development and welfare, and the outcomes for learners.
