Here's A Ranking Of UK Schools Based On GCSE Results
Back in the day, I never cared about GCSEs. Sorry Ms. Dawson, but no employer has ever asked me about them. I am the best. I win.
But if anyone does question my grades, I got an A in English, a B in Maths and a C in everything else. What are they going to do? Check with those clowns in the admin office? I doubt it. I might not have the certificates, but the fact I'm not in prison is vindication enough.
If you do care (nerd alert!), a new ranking will tell you if your school is dwindling in the depths of examination despair or reveling at the top of the A* table. Apparently, 47% of my old school got five or more A* - C grades last year. I don't think my year 11 class could boast the same stats.
The top 20 schools in the UK are as follows:
The Henrietta Barnett School - Barnet
Dartford Grammar School - Kent
Altrincham Grammar School for Girls - Trafford
The Blue Coat School - Liverpool
Colchester County High School for Girls - Essex
Lawrence Sheriff School - Warwickshire
Dr Challoner's High School - Buckinghamshire
Reading School - Reading
Kendrick School - Reading
St Michael's Catholic Grammar School - Barnet
Wycombe High School - Buckinghamshire
King Edward VI School - Warwickshire
Lancaster Girls' Grammar School - Lancashire
Pate's Grammar School - Gloucestershire
Queen Mary's Grammar School - Walsall
Westcliff High School for Girls - Southend-on-Sea
