Secondary league tables 2012: Lowest GCSE results
This table lists the 200 state secondary schools in England with the lowest attainment at GCSE level.
The schools are ranked on the percentage of pupils attaining five A*-C passes in GCSE or equivalent qualifications, including maths and English GCSEs. The average number of points scored per pupil is then used as a tie break where schools have the same result.
Schools marked AC are academies, schools with fewer than 30 pupils are not included.
Pate's Grammar school, a high-achieving selective school in Cheltenham, scored 0% because pupils sat new English exams which the Department for Education does not recognise for the purpose of performance data.
Similarly, Rushden Community College in Northamptonshire, scoring 6%, had entered pupils for English exams not counted by the DfE.
