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 20 with the exception of Eton College who usually publish their results very late. 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).
Note 2. Exam results are not the only criteria by which to judge a school (read
our eGuide on selection factors click here). Indeed some of the schools
in this TOP 20 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 results for schools with less than 20 students taking A Levels.
