A-Level Results Day
18 August 2022 is A-Level results day in the UK and while pictures of smiling teenagers jumping in the air and heart-warming individual success stories are great, some parents want to see numbers, too! So look no further for an initial ranking of London secondary schools based on their 2022 A-Level results. We report results here as they are released. This post will be updated continuously over the coming days and weeks as results are released. If you are looking for the top 100 secondary schools based on GCSE results, click here.

2022 marked the first year of A-level results based on public examinations since 2019. As last year, the highly selective King’s Maths School tops the table again. These 80 London schools have published their results so far. They are ranked by the percentage of A-Levels graded A* – the highest possible grade -where available, though a few schools that haven’t reported this number are included in the results for comparison based on their percentage of A* – A. Among private schools, Emanuel School in Clapham has reported its best ever A-level results. Other co-educational schools such as Alleyn’s and Harrodian School have also reported their best ever results, reflecting their increasing popularity.

    1. Graveney school had an A-A* percentage of 36.5% at A-levels in 2022, so they would not be in the top 100, probably around 150 or 200. They have not published their % of A* grades.

  1. Eltham College In A Levels 2022 , 44% of grades were A*, while 74% were either A*/ A. Nearly 90% of A Level grades were A*-B

  2. St Olaves, At GCSE, 91.0% of the grades
    secured by pupils were grades 9-7, with
    51% being at 9 and 77% being at 9/8,
    Oxbridge : 37

  3. City of London girl has 36% of students achieving three A*s or more and 85% of all papers graded A* or A. Why not add in 36% to truly reflect your ranking if you are using A*s as your ranking criteria?

    1. 36% of students achieving three A*’s is not the same as 36% of all grades being A* – most likely their A* percentage is even higher but this number will be added when published.

    1. These are A-level results. I think you are giving percentages of GCSE grades. From the Colfe’s website: “88% of grades awarded were A*-B with 71% A*-A – eighteen students achieved straight A*..”

  4. Radnor House (soon to be Kneller Hall !) reporting :

    A Level, the A-E pass rate was 99%, with 48% of the grades at A* and A, 75% A*-B and 96% A*-C.

  5. Where are the boarding schools as a lot of them will change the top 10 ranking… Wycombe, Cheltenham, St Mary’s Ascot….

    1. This is an overview of LONDON based schools so will not include boarding schools outside of London by definition. It is not a UK ranking, just London. That said, many of the London schools dominate the top 100 UK rankings as well.

    1. Not yet because they have not published their percentage of A-A* grades yet. Based on percentage of A*-B, they will likely be around #80. If you have the results, do share and they can be included.

  6. Holland Park School results sent to parents are:
    A* grades 25.6%
    A*-A grades 54.2%
    A*-B grades 76.8%
    A*-C grades 90.4%
    100% pass rate.
