How do I interpret comprehensive school league tables?

These comprehensive school league table rankings are based on the national GCSE and A-Level exams. Non-exam based criteria may are also used to determine the rankings.

So, you need to conduct your own analysis to determine which comprehensive school best suits your child’s specific needs.
