Top 50 Secondary schools in England by Key Stage 5 (A-Level and equivalent) Average Point Score : 2023 vs 2022

Information regarding KS2 results: Most independent schools don't measure Key Stage 2 performance. Thus there is no direct comparison between state and independent primary schools available.
Information regarding GCSE results: There is a lot of controversy regarding league tables that show GCSE results. The Department for Education changed performance tables in 2014 to exclude re-sits, IGCSEs and a range of vocational qualifications. As a result some schools, particularly independent schools which often sit IGCSEs, appear to be performing far worse than they actually are. In fact a lot of independent schools have now dropped to the very bottom of the GCSE league tables. Here is a BBC article on the resulting controversy.
Information regarding gender filter: Where results are filtered by gender, the rank displayed remains the rank amongst all schools, not just schools of that gender.
Schools marked with a are schools that are ranked within the top 10% of all schools (England only) for at least one measure (i.e. Key Stage 2 performance, GCSE Attainment 8 or A-Level Average Point Score).
