Secondary league tables: Best GCSE results

This table lists the 200 schools in England with the highest attainment at GCSE and other Key Stage 4 qualifications.

The first column shows the proportion of pupils who attained the benchmark standard of five A*-C passes, including maths and English GCSEs. The average number of points scored per pupil is then used as a tie break - point scores are given for each qualification, with higher scores for higher grades.

Schools marked IND are independent, those marked SEL select their pupils on the basis of academic activity. Schools marked AC are academies. Schools with fewer than 30 pupils in the relevant year group are not included.
