The provisional Key Stage Four (GCSE level) results have been released by the Department for Education for schools across the country.

We have ranked the schools using the ‘Attainment 8’ score, which measures the achievement of pupils across eight different subjects. Pupils are given a score in eight different GCSEs and for each subject, pupils are given a mark from 1 to 9 (for English and Maths) or from 1 to 8.5 (for other subjects).
