The top performing schools in the Northwest are revealed in Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2022, available online on Friday 3rd December and as a supplement with The Sunday Times on Sunday 5th December.
The 29th edition of Parent Power identifies the highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their examination results from 2017-19. A fully searchable national database by school name, local authority, town and postcode, together with regional rankings are available to Times and Sunday Times subscribers at: thesundaytimes.co.uk/parentpower
As well as assessment of all academic results on a school-by-school basis, Parent Power enables parents to compare the performance of a given school with other schools in the same town, local authority or nationally. There are also live links to school websites and schools’ most recent inspection reports.
Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the country’s highest-achieving schools.
The rankings in the secondary school league tables are determined by the average percentage of examination entries in the three years, 2017-19, gaining A* to B grades at A-level (which is given a double weighting) and the average percentage of entries returning 9-7 or A* and A grades at GCSE.
Only schools that published their results in those years or disclosed them to The Sunday Times have been included in this edition of The Sunday Times Schools Guide, which includes around 1,700 schools. Examination outcomes from 2020 and 2021 have not been used in determining this year’s Parent Power rankings.
Stephanie Gill, principal, said:
“We are delighted that the hard work of staff and students has been recognised in this award. We are proud of our students many achievements, not just across the curriculum but also in the extra-curricular activities they take part in and often lead, their service to the community and their personal and social development.”
