“In recent years Concord’s A level league table position has rocketed to the very top.” (Good Schools Guide, 2009)
School League Tables have been published by the UK’s top newpapers for a number of years. They use different performance data to compare schools’ performance. Exam results lie at the heart of these tables.
Over the past few years, Concord College has performed extremely well in the league tables, especially when looked at against other co-educational boarding schools. It is worth stressing that these tables look at all the many thousands of secondary schools in the UK and even to come in the top 100 schools is an enormous achievement. With the College achieving improving exam results since 2008, our league table position has been at its most consistent.
Of course, league tables do not tell the whole story. It is also important to know whether a student is happy, fulfilled and developing to their full potential. However, the tables do provide a useful guide to parents considering sending their child to Concord or to any other school.
Below is a summary of the College’s performance:
|The Financial Times||***||***||***||***||6th||10th|
|League Table based on data provided by the ISC||4th||2nd||4th||4th||2nd||4th|
|The Daily Telegraph||18th||14th||9th||19th||21st||19th|
* In 2008/9 The Times changed the way in which they compiled their league tables and grouped schools with other schools they considered to be similar. Concord is ranked with other co-educational schools in the UK and all girls and all boys schools are listed separately.
*** The Financial Times has not produced a league table since September 2012.
