    I'm applying to a job at an Indy and I'm curious if theres a league table for Indy schools. I'm trying to find out where the indy I did my subject placement is in relation to the one I'm currently applying too.

    With respect to Theo, the national league tables don't necessarily give a very accurate picture of independent schools at GCSE, as many of the top schools enter pupils for IGCSE, which is not yet counted in the tables. A level tables tend to be more useful, but even here I'm not sure if they include things like the Cambridge Pre-U which is popular in some schools. However, the following looks to me to give a pretty accurate picture:

    Of course, there is a lot more to any school than just A-level results!

    Of course they don't!
    But the links that I gave give A-level tables too, Florian! And they also explain the criteria for their ranking. The interesting thing is seeing how schools swim up and down the tables, depending on which criteria are used.
