We also measure the success of The King’s School by looking at where our pupils go on to study for university. Almost all of them go forward to higher education, some after a gap year. We use “The Times Top University” tables for comparisons, although there are a myriad of other tables. The Times looks at: results, facilities, research funding and other measures.
The King’s School is extremely proud to have been named as one of the top Independent schools nationally for its high numbers of Sixth Form leavers who go to the top universities. King’s came in 6th place in the country in the league table which was published recently in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2016.
Russell Group Universities are 24 of the top “Red Brick” Universities who are recognised for gaining high levels of inward research money.

Government Schools A Level and GCSE Performance Tables
The government releases performance tables which report on various measures in January. These can sometimes be misleading. For example, measuring the A Level academic results of a school by average points scored per A Level student or results in the English Baccalaureate measure.
