Schools that add the least value
This page shows the schools in England with the lowest 5% of "value added" measures from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4.

The measure, shown in the final column, compares pupils' exam performances with the middle performance of other pupils nationally who had similar prior attainment.

It is based around 1000. The bottom 5% in 2005 had a score of 937.3 and below.

The ranking needs treating with care. Official statisticians say small differences may not be significant and the significance varies with the number of pupils involved.

Smaller schools, with fewer than 30 students taking the exams, are not ranked.

We have included information on the type of schools, and a column showing their GCSE-level (Level 2 threshold) results.
