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 TOP 100. 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 (click here).
Approximately 60 schools have boycotted league tables by refusing to publish exam
results in 2011, mainly because they do not want to be compared to state schools
offering soft option subjects or through failure of the Government to acknowledge
the more stretching IGCSEs. Notwithstanding this we have recorded most of their
exam results in our tables. The only school likely to be missing from the top 30 would be Eton College.
Note 2. Exam results are not the only criteria by which to judge a school (read
our eGuide on selection factors click here) Indeed most of the schools in
this TOP 100 table are quite selective on their admissions. Be aware your child
may not necessarily thrive in a high pressure academic environment –
Note 3. We do not include schools which have less than 20 pupils taking A Levels.
