School banding: Welsh government school scores revealed
- 18 December 2012
- From the section Wales
This table, produced by BBC Wales, ranks all secondary schools in Wales by the total score they were given by the Welsh government.
It is an assessment of a school's performance in the academic year 2011-12, where the lowest scores represent the best performance.
The scores were derived by assessing school performance within categories including GCSE results and attendance.
Within each category, a school's score is modified to take into account the percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals.
Most of the categories also take into account progress over time, to reward schools that are making improvements in performance.
The scores are used by the Welsh government to rank the schools into five bands.
School banding information is also available from the Welsh government website.
