The best performing schools in South Yorkshire according to the Sunday Times have been revealed.
Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2018, has identified the 2,000 highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their recent examination results. It includes primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form colleges, independent schools and academies.
The rankings in the secondary school league tables are determined by the percentage of examination entries gaining A* to B grades at A-level this summer (which is given double weighting) and the percentage of entries returning A* and A grades at GCSE. They are published several weeks ahead of the official Government tables for secondary school performance.
Primary school rankings are based on SAT results, but some independent schools do not appear as they do not take SATs.
Westbourne School came top in Sheffield and is ranked in *’seventh place nationwide’ after some fantastic exam results.
The independent secondary school, which caters to around 350 students, achieved 48.3 per cent in GCSES at A* and A.
With 74% of the Scholarship Class gaining A**, A* or A grades.
(based on the top fee paying schools with small or no sixth forms.)
