London Senior School League tables 2013

And the top secondary school in London is….  the St Paul’s Girls’ School (again)! The second place goes to Westminster School, followed by the North London Collegiate School. The data is based on the Telegraph’s 2013 independent school league table for all of England, but I have added a few more schools individually that were not included in that table (for example, St Paul’s School for Girls and also the Henrietta Barnett School, which is a state grammar school but can easily compete with the top independent schools). The St Paul’s School for boys doesn’t seem to have published their results yet – I assume they would be among the top 5 in the table as well. I will add them once published. If you are interested in the top state secondary schools by GCSE results, have a look at this state school league table, but it will show you mostly grammar schools of which there are very few in London. Only the Henrietta Barnett School and Tiffin Girls’ in Kingston made it into the top 20 from the state sector. Compared to my post on 2012 results, I have widened the area to include grammar schools in Kingston and the highly successful independent schools Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Boys and for Girls (since they run school buses to many North London neighbourhoods). This means a few schools included in the London top 20 for 2012 have dropped out, for example Channing, UCS, Alleyn’s and Dulwich College.

I like these tables especially to interpret exit results of prep schools, all of which say their pupils go on to the top London senior schools. This table shows you there is still a big difference between schools in the top 5 and those in the 10-20 range.
