Schools in Cumbria
This page shows schools in this area ranked on the basis of their "value added" measures from Key Stage 2 to GCSE.

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

It is based around 1000. The top 5% had a score of 1056.6 and above - the best being 1099.8. Smaller schools, with fewer than 30 students taking the exams, are not ranked.
