Record A-level results shoot Bradford up schools league table
Bradford has shot up the national school league tables for A-level results after record grades were achieved last summer, figures published today show.
The district rose 19 places to 103rd out of 150 local authorities but failed to improve its position in national GCSE results league tables.
Bradford was again ranked 144 out of 151 local authorities with 47.5 per cent of pupils achieving the Government’s benchmark of at least five A* to C grades, including English and maths, up 3.1 per cent from last year.
The Girls’ Grammar School, Bradford, was the district’s top performing school at GCSE followed by Bradford Grammar School and Dixons City Academy.
Heckmondwike Grammar School was ranked as the 12th best state school for A-level results with Skipton Girls’ High School, St Mary’s School in Menston, Dixons City Academy and Ilkley Grammar also in the top 200.
Tong HIgh School was again named among the country’s 200 most improved schools after the proportion of pupils gaining five GCSEs improved consecutively over the last four years.
