Fewer than a quarter of secondary schools completed this year's tests for 14-year-olds in English, maths and science, a survey revealed.

A teachers' boycott led to fewer than one school in 10 reporting the full results of the tests, the survey by the Secondary Heads Association has revealed. Of 800 schools questioned, 516 (64.2 per cent) had carried out none of the tests and a further 107 (13.3 per cent) had carried out only some.
