Notes about the league table:

The information published above is accurate to the best of our knowledge at the time of the publication. Our league table does not include day schools and public schools. For more information about other schools, please contact us through the button below.

Due to the Coronavirus affecting the GCSE examinations in 2020-2021, students were graded using Teacher-Assessed Grades. The Government has announced that it will not publish any school performance data based on tests, assessments or exams (such as GCSEs and A Levels) for 2020-2021.

As a result, many schools have opted to not publish their 2020-2021 results and annual league tables have not been able to publish this year. We’ve put together our own league table using data obtained directly from the schools or from the schools’ websites for all the top 100 schools on our list. This is the reason why our league table is one of few available for the year 2021.

This information is for reference only – for more information about studying in the UK, do send Britannia StudyLink an enquiry for a free consultation. One of our educational consultants will be in touch with you shortly.
