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 50. Sometimes grades improve as a result of appeals on exam results and we may 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 50 table are quite selective on their admissions. Be aware your child may not necessarily thrive in a high pressure academic environment - take our advice.
