Here's A Ranking Of UK Schools Based On GCSE Results

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

Sutton Grammar School - Sutton

The Tiffin Girls' School - Kingston upon Thames

King Edward VI Five Ways School - Birmingham

Sir William Borlase's Grammar School - Buckinghamshire

If you want to find out how your school performed, you can head to the Department for Education website.
