I am really confused with the following two GCSE results table

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/0 ... e-results/ (This one only included grammar schools)

http://www.londonpreprep.com/2018/08/gcse-results-2018/ (This one includes private and grammar schools)

Rankings for grammar schools are so much variation between them.

Different grammar schools have different intakes. Some are very selective, others take 30% of the local children. It is bound to have an effect on results. Children who have shown themselves to be good at passing exams at 11 continue to be good at passing exams at 16 (& probably would be wherever they went to school).

RGS students took IGCSE English last summer. IGCSE is not counted in the league table so is missing from the calculation. They got very good GCSE results in the summer.

Really great to see many schools of different types doing so well in terms of the Progress 8 measure. Waddesdon, Cressex, Amersham, Holmer Green, St Michael's. Makes great reading.

Yes it is, DC doing well and achieving their potential no matter what school they went to has to be the best outcome from all of this

There seem to be a few regulars missing this year... I noticed JaneEyre isn't around either. Were there any UFO sitings at the back end of last year?
