Oh dear indeed! My post wasn’t meant as an invitation to bite – merely canvassing opinion about school league tables.
My question about KES and CHB possibly favouring Baccalaureate was meant as just that – a question, not a statement. I wouldn’t know if CHB favour Baccalaureate, GCSE’s or those little stickers in the shape of gold stars. I just wondered why there wasn’t any 2013 information for them in the latest league tables. Maybe I should have phrased my question differently.
Regarding the DfE web site – if you click on any of the headers at the top of each column, the table will re-order the schools in ascending or descending order for that particular column. The default is ‘School name’ in alphabetical order. So if you click on ‘2013’ it will put the schools in rank order from 100% down to 9%. This column shows ‘% achieving 5+ A*-C GCSEs (or equivalent) including English and maths GCSEs’, which is the usual benchmark most schools are judged on. Hope that makes sense.

Still curious to know what people think of league tables……..
