Top Schools / Colleges League Tables

For many years, Best Schools has produced league tables by exam results for UK private schools. Schools in our league tables are presented each year with certificates and the top schools each year receive unique Crystal Awards. You will often come across these on display at schools across the UK. Our League Tables are compiled from the exam results of students in UK private schools and colleges. We go to great lengths to ensure that we collate results from as many schools as possible and these are carefully checked before publication of our tables. All our League Tables are based on clear, fair and easily measurable criteria making them uniquely straightforward and user-friendly. Our league tables have become very well-known and are relied on by many parents, schools and education professionals in the UK and internationally.

League Tables are a very useful indication of a school’s academic standing. However, when it comes to selecting the best school for a child, league tables do not tell the whole story about a school. Those schools near the top of each table are generally extremely selective on admissions and can sometimes reject more than 75% of applicants. Additionally a highly academic school is not necessarily the right environment for many children. Parents need to bear in mind that schools lower down the tables may provide an equally exceptional education but cater for a wider ability range.

We specialise in advising parents on the best schools to target for their children so please contact us for a free consultation to discuss your child's education on +44 1622 813870 or by completing an Enquiry Form.
