'Similar schools' means schools across England whose key stage 4 pupils had similar achievement at the end of key stage 2 opens a popup . These figures are based on the results of pupils who finished key stage 4 in July 2018, which is the latest data available.
The list shows the selected school compared to other state-funded mainstream schools whose key stage 4 pupils were expected to achieve similar results in year 11 based on their grades at the end of primary school (key stage 2).
Two types of similar schools in the list are highlighted with a clickable question mark:
- Better performing schools that are located within 75 miles of the school
- Schools with a similar percentage of disadvantaged pupils opens a popup .
If there is no similar school within 75 miles that is substantially better performing, a better performing school outside of the similar schools grouping may be shown at the bottom of the page. This may not be possible if the school has very high attainment. For further details, see School performance tables: about the data opens in a new window
Similar schools lists are normally updated each year in January, along with revised opens a popup results data, and again later in Spring, along with final results data.

Schools and colleges not covering full Progress 8 period
Some schools start educating pupils partway through the 5-year period covered by Progress 8, which should be taken into account when comparing their results with schools that start at Key Stage 3. Progress 8 is not the most appropriate performance measure for university technical colleges, studio schools and some further education colleges. These establishments typically start educating pupils at age 14, with a focus on preparing pupils for their future careers by providing an integrated academic and professional education. Other headline measures, particularly pupil destinations, are more important for these establishments.
