In this Best Schools UK Tag Archive, we hope to collect all articles relating to rankings of UK schools. We base a lot of these on the Sunday Times Parent Power rankings.

This is merely to provide parents with access to these rankings so that they can make informed decisions on the best schools to choose for their children. These rankings are influenced by a lot of criteria and these should be taken into account.

We also have a look at the criteria which made these schools achieve the rankings they have. This, mostly according to the Sunday Times Parent Power published every year. We look at the general best schools UK rankings as well as the independent school rankings individually.

There are many great facts included like this one:

More than one quarter (133) of the 500 top-performing state secondary schools are to be found in the southeast, yet the appetite for independent education is huge, with 156,000 children educated in fee-paying schools here, 50,000 more than in London.

These rankings are published yearly and we list the rankings for both state and independent schools.

Therefore, find the different rankings as per UK regions to find out which are the best schools in your region so that you can make an informed decision on your child’s education. We are determined to provide you with relevant and up to date information. We do this in an effort to take the anxiety out all things relating to school admissions. Therefore make sure to keep an eye on these posts.
