Figures published today by the Department for Education reveal the top schools in the country for A-level results or equivalent qualifications.
The results are for exams taken in the summer of 2016 and have been ranked in our searchable league table according to two separate measures.
Schools have first been ranked according to average points per exam entry and then the proportion of students obtaining AAB with two facilitating subjects (i.e. subjects needed to secure a place at a Russell Group University). This includes English literature, history, languages, maths, the sciences and geography.
This year nine of the top 10 schools for A-level results were independent schools. St Paul's Girls' School in London tops the list, with pupils scoring an average 54.52 points (A+) per academic entry, with a total of 89.6 percent of pupils obtaining AAB with two facilitating subjects.
Westminster School, London, came second with an average points score of 53.15 (A+), while Magdelen College School, Oxford, came third with 52.46 (A+).
Heathfield Community School, Taunton, was the only state school to feature in the top 10, scoring 52 points per entry.
With the exception of Concord College, Shrewsbury, every school in the top 10 are located in the South East, while nearly a quarter (23 percent) of the 100 top schools are situated in London.
