UK GCSE Results Table 2019

The Telegraph newspaper has recently released the GCSE results of over 300 schools in the UK. It shows the percentage of students that scored between A*-A grades in their exams.

It is important for parents to consider how a school’s GCSE results may determine the success of their child. At Britannia StudyLink, we assist parents in choosing the right secondary schools for their children to attend based on their academic performance.

Listed below are the Telegraph GCSE Results Table 2019. The schools listed here can give you a slight benchmark on how to choose the right school, but that should not be the only factors to consider. The September 2019 intake will be the first opportunity for students to apply to these schools, followed by the second cohort under January 2019. 

For more information, see our guide on Britannia StudyLink’s UK boarding school application process.
