Top 50 Comprehensive schools - A-level
This table shows the 50 English comprehensive 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, where an A-grade scores 10 points.

Where schools have achieved the same score, schools 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.
