Reading leads England in A Level results

ReadingBoysOfficial data released by the Department for Education (19 January 2017) shows secondary schools in Reading as the highest achieving at A Level in England.

The new A Level league table focuses primarily on schools' average point score per academic entry, and the proportion of students that achieved ABB with two facilitating subjects, which are subjects needed in order to be accepted onto a course at a Russell Group university.

Under the ranking system, Reading was ranked highest in terms of average point score per academic entry, with the average student scoring 38.73 (B-).

Three Reading schools were also listed in the top 100 for A Level results – Reading Schools ( boys grammar school - 57), Kendrick School ( girls grammar school- 59) and the Abbey School (girls independent school - 63).

Three Reading schools were also ranked in the top 50 for GCSE results, including Reading School, which was placed 8th in the country.

Reading has a higher proportion of pupils going to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities than anywhere else in the country.  This reflects the standard of teaching and the wide choice of schools within both the borough and the Greater Reading area. Parents can choose from high performing state grammars and academies, an ‘outstanding’ University Technical College, as well as many independent schools.
