This is in the #general category as it’s possibly most useful for parents applying this year who haven’t joined our #parenting-schools category yet.

This is a wiki topic so can be edited and amended by members, and please note that there’s a lot more to a school than it’s raw academic performance. Hopefully the above helps anyone still trying to decide on the application process - and good luck!

Edit: I’ve just re-ordered the table columns so more of the good data is in the first columns of the table, rather than having to scroll right to see it.
