The best performing secondary schools in Greenwich, based on pupils’ results since Key Stage 2, have been revealed.

They are based on government data, available here, that tracked the "overall performance" of students at the end of Key Stage 4 in 2019.

The department of education data ranked the schools based on the 'Progress 8' score.

The government's website says the Progress 8 score "shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2 and the end of key stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2."

"This is based on results in up to eight qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications."
