Whether or not you believe in the utility of school league tables, every year, the Department for Education publishes the results of primary and secondary school exams taken by pupils across the country.
Although the majority of professionals in education would advise against exclusive use of these results for school selection and comparison, they can prove to be an effective tool for parents when reviewing options for children.
Each year The Telegraph produces three comparison tools, which allow users to search for individual schools, check various statistics, compare the results with averages in the local area and nationally, and then directly compare schools with other institutions.
The tools use results from primary school tests taken at age 11, GCSEs (or equivalents) taken at age 16, and A-levels (or equivalents) taken at 18.
Select which level you would like to review, by clicking on one of the boxes below. This will direct you to the relevant page.
If you want to search by specific school or postcode you can type it into the search box. You can then add schools to your comparison list by checking the ‘add to compare’ box.
