Secondary education in UK: top 15 schools to consider

post-photo

The A-level exams are the key exams for British students — it is on their basis that universities make their enrollment decisions. The best schools in England are presented in descending order of the percentage of A* grades and, if there are no results for A* grades, the schools were ranked according to the results of A*-A (the higher the %, the better the results). Usually, the list does not include schools that scored less than 50% of A grades.

The general trend in 2019 was towards the deterioration of the results of the most important school exams. The difference in the percentage of A* and A*-A grades for such academically exemplary schools as St Paul's for Girls’, Westminster, City of London for Girls, North London Collegiate School, Wycombe Abbey and others was from 5% and higher.

Nevertheless, I would like to note the schools that have improved their results compared to 2018. Of the public schools, these include — King's College London Maths School and Altrincham Grammar School for Girls. Among private schools, significant progress was made in the following schools — City of London School (for boys), Hampton School, Oxford High School GDST, The Godolphin and Latymer School, St Mary's School Ascot, South Hampstead High School, St Catherine's School, Ruthin School.
