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 may update the data periodically, as long it does not distort the results of schools which have not given us their remarks. We encourage all schools to supply corrections or additions (click here). Approximately 60 schools have boycotted league tables by refusing to publish exam results, 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.

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 - take advice.

Note 3. We do not include schools which have less than 20 pupils taking A Levels.
