Top grammar school league tables
First thing you need to know is your local catchment area? And then establish which schools are within that catchment area.
Where can I find the top grammar schools?
The Guardian, The Times and The Telegraph websites allow you to add filters to their published league tables. You can pull out those schools for which you are in the catchment area. Then compare your chosen school group on those criteria which are most important to you.
How do I interpret grammar school league tables?
The primary school league table rankings are based on national key standards, called the SATs. Non-exam based criteria are also used to determine the rankings.
You need to conduct your own analysis to determine which school best suits your child’s specific needs.

Ofsted Reports for grammar schools
Check the latest Ofsted report too. Each Ofsted report is an analysis of that school’s teachers’ professional competence Plus, whether Ofsted’s performance standards have been met across the school. There are three possible outcomes: under-achieving; achieving; or outstanding.
