Note.1. Sometimes there are a few gaps in our data, because the information is not freely available or a school will not supply it. In general this applies to lower graded schools in the table. Sometimes grades improve as a result of appeals on exam results and we will update the data periodically. We encourage all schools to supply corrections or additions. We go to great lengths to gather all school exam results, whereas most of the tables you can see in British newspapers are missing more than 60 top schools. OURS ARE ACCURATE AND COMPREHENSIVE.

Note 2. Exam results are not the only criteria by which to judge a school. Indeed some of the top schools in our tables are quite selective on their admissions. Be aware your child may not necessarily thrive in a high pressure academic environment – get bespoke advice from us.
