KEY TO THE LEAGUE TABLES

A school's value added score is arrived at by predicting what pupils should achieve when they arrive at school at age 11. If – on average – pupils improve on their predicted performance and do better than fellow pupils in similar circumstances, the school will be awarded a score of more than 1,000. If they do worse, it will get less than 1,000.

The average point score for A-level again takes account of all qualifications gained by pupils. An A grade in general or vocational A-level is worth 270 points, B, 240; C, 210; D, 180; and E, 150. The International Baccalaureate is also recognised with a maximum score of 45 being rewarded with 1,380 points.
