Gloucestershire schools singled out in The Sunday Times top in UK table

If exam results are what you think makes a school among the very best, and The Sunday Times certainly does, then there is something to celebrate in Gloucestershire.

Billing its list as Parent Power and its league table as 'The top independent and state secondary schools' the newspaper goes on to list the 'Top 150", as it calls it, from public and private.

In the private sector, Cheltenham Ladies College gets a mention, sitting at number 31 listing with 91.2 per cent of students achieving grades A* to B at A-Level and 90.3 per cent achieving GCSE grades A*/A 9/8/7.

When it comes to state secondary school the selective The Crypt School, Gloucester, comes in at number 145 in the exam results table with 63.5 per cent achieving grades A* to B at A-Level and 58.3 per cent achieving GCSE grades A*/A 9/8/7.

Further up the list at number 65 per is another selective, Sir Thomas Rich's School, Gloucester, with 73 per cent achieving grades A* to B at A-Level and 68.7 per cent achieving GCSE grades A*/A 9/8/7.

Then at 60 another grammar - Denmark Road High School, with 70 per cent achieving grades A* to B at A-Level and 77.8 per cent achieving GCSE grades A*/A 9/8/7.

Just outside the top 3 at Number 4, is Pate's Grammar School, the only Cheltenham school to make the state school list of 150.

It manages 95.6 per cent achieving grades A* to B at A-Level and 87.5 per cent achieving GCSE grades A*/A 9/8/7.

Pates receives special mention from the newspaper
