The rankings are based on Progress 8 scores – which is a score that is based on the GCSE grades achieved by students in their best eight subjects and the progress made from the end of year 6.
These are the eight schools which rank the highest on the Government’s Compare School Performance Service – click here to see the full table.
On the website there is the following disclaimer: ‘Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, most exams and assessments did not take place in 2019/20 or 2020/21. As a result of this, the government announced that it would not publish school or college level results data in autumn 2020 or autumn 2021.’
Thus the rankings in the Government’s table is based on Overall performance at end of key stage 4 in 2019.

The secondary schools are listed in ascending order.
