League tables showing the performance of English secondary schools in GCSEs and equivalent qualifications at more than more than 5,000 schools have been published today by the Department for Education.
Schools are ranked by the percentage of pupils gaining at least five A* to C grades including the key subjects of English and maths.
Our unique interactive version of the tables below allows you to search these results and others by specific school or region and compare schools of your choice against one another.

Clicking on an individual school’s name brings up more detailed information, including; the percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A*-C grades or equivalents including A*-C in both English and mathematics, the percentage of pupils achieving 5+ A*-C or equivalents, the percentage of Key Stage 4 pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) and the average point score.
The average points score is calculated by assigning each level a certain number of points – an A* is worth 58 points, A 52, B 46, C 40, D 34, E 28, F 22, and G 16. Totals are then divided by the number of pupils sitting the tests to provide an average.
The individual school pages also display the school’s location, as well as the total number of pupils sitting exams last year.
What is the Ebacc?
The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is a performance measure which shows how many pupils get a grade C or above in the core academic subjects – maths, English, the sciences, a language and history or georgraphy – at GCSE.
The Government introduced the EBacc in 2010, and last year announced plans for all pupils who start Year 7 in September 2015 to take the EBacc subjects at GCSE in 2020. The consultation on the Ebacc proposals ends at the end of January 2016.
Note: Schools with no data are excluded from the tables for several reasons, including: small numbers of pupils (which risks an individual pupil’s results being identified); investigations into maladministration of tests; or for other reasons beyond the school’s control. Many independent and state schools score zero (or very low scores) if they enter all or most pupils for alternative qualifications that are not accredited by the Government. This includes certain IGCSEs
