The worst GCSE-level results
This page shows the 118 schools in England in which 15% of pupils or less achieved the Level 2 threshold - equivalent to five GCSEs at grade C or above - including English and maths GCSEs.

They are shown in reverse order, with the lowest-scoring at the top.

The CVA column shows the schools' contextual value added scores - the new progress measure.

The letters after each school's name show what type it is, any specialism, its admissions policy and whether it has a Boys, Girls or Mixed intake.

Smaller schools with fewer than 30 pupils eligible to take the exams are not included.
