Top 50 Grammar schools - A-level
This table shows the 50 English non-independent selective schools which achieved the best performance at A-level.

Schools are ranked by average UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) score for pupils who took two or more A-levels.

An A-grade scores 10 points.

Where schools have achieved the same score, they are listed alphabetically. The table also shows in brackets the school's rank by the same measure amongst schools of all types, this year and last year.
