Our League Tables are compiled from the exam results of students in UK private schools and colleges. We go to great lengths to ensure that we collate results from as many schools as possible and these are carefully checked before publication of our tables. All our League Tables are based on clear, fair and easily measurable criteria making them uniquely straightforward and user-friendly.
League Tables are a very useful indication of a school’s academic standing. However, when it comes to selecting the best school for a child, League Tables do not tell the whole story about a school. Those schools near the top of each table are generally extremely selective on admissions and can sometimes reject more than 90% of applicants. Additionally, a highly academic school is not necessarily the right environment for many children. Parents need to bear in mind that schools lower down the tables may provide an equally exceptional education but cater for students of a wider ability range.
Our private school league tables are separated into categories based on day or boarding, single sex or co-ed and also by curriculum.
