Ranking schools based on academic results

There are a large range of factors that impact on academic results in addition to the role played by the school itself. These include the SES (Socio Economic Status) background of students, whether the school is selective in its student intake, etc. It is for the reader to do his own research and draw his or her own conclusions.

  • many factors affect student achievement, some of which are outside the control of schools. These include differences in ability, cultural and language background, educational background of parents and economic differences;
  • no single table or data source should prevail in drawing conclusions about the achievement of students at schools. A more realistic picture is gained from a composite view of all information available about schools;
  • the statistics of a single year should not be considered in isolation, rather the trend or pattern over a number of years should be considered;
  • small numbers of candidates at a school can bias inferences, particularly with percentages.
