It has been a mixed year for Bradford schools, according to the latest league tables.

The national tables, released today, show there has been an improvement in GCSE results across the district but a drop in the A-level rankings.

The district fell 17 places to 120th of 150 local authorities for average A-level points scored last year.

But the district rose nine places in the GCSE rankings, to 135th of 151 local authorities.

The league tables show 52.4 per cent of GCSE pupils achieved the Government’s benchmark of at least five A* to C grades, including English and maths, up from 47.5 per cent last year.

The best performing school at GCSE was Bradford Grammar, with 98 per cent of pupils achieving Government the benchmark.

And the best performing school for A-level results was Ilkley Grammar, where students achieved an average of 932.9 points each.
