A-Level results 2023: school ranking

17 August 2023 was A-Level results day in the UK! 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 2023 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.

Below are the top 100. King’s Maths School tops the table again. For the first time, two state schools take the two top spots! Highgate School has shot up this year, making it one of the most successful co-educational schools, thanks to their impressive 47% of A-Level entries rated A*.

  1. Where are the boarding schools here ?
    Is that a different ranking. Usually, Wycombe and Eton are in the top 5… along with Winchester, Cheltenham and a few others in the top 20

    1. this is a ranking for London schools, not a UK wide ranking, hence Eton and Wycombe Abbey are not included. there are many UK rankings published elsewhere, this ranking is specifically for London parents.

  2. Radnor House Twickenham (Private)
    A Level Results 2023 % Achieved
    % Grades A*/A 41%
    % Grades A* – B 76%
    % Grades A* – C 93%
    % Grades A* – E 99%

  3. Hampton School 2023 A LEVEL RESULTS
    32% of grades were at A*
    70% of grades were at A*-A

    44% of grades were 9s
    75% of grades were at 9-8 (A*)

    1. that is because they do not actually publish the data required to be included in this ranking. They do publish plenty of individual success stories and overall government mandated performance data but not the % of all entries graded A* oe A*-A

    1. City have not published their results yet unfortunately. They have only said that 95% of grades are at A*-B so I assume they will end up being ranked at Alleyn’s / Latymer Upper level this year.

    1. Think better to list A-A*% and show the ranking based on that instead of A* we know boys has higher % than girls for A* due to subject bias
