I can see Birmingham grammars in rankings (newspaper ones) as well as shottery but not kes.
Anyone know why not?

suspect of the reason why they may not make the top slots in the tables is here:

There are plenty of schools around the country who will get 100% getting 3 A levels and also an averege of over 1000 in A/AS level points

I think like most of the grammars, they do well but year on year just the difference of a few points can move them up and down the league tables.

that's probably the case - there are so many schools very close in terms of % and A/AS points that a "blip" of a few people not doing so well one year can make a lot of difference.

Some schools also set highish targets to enter year 12 and year 13.. so the ultimate year 13 results may represent a highly selected bunch in some places.

KES take pupils into the 6th form who haven't been there throughout, which probably skews the A level results a bit. Would be more interesting to see results for the pupils they've had all the way through.
