Colyton Grammar School has again been ranked one of the country’s top schools in the latest performance figures.

At key stage four, the school is ranked fourth nationally with a total average (capped) point score of 450.6 per pupil.

At key stage five, the school has moved up to second place nationally with an average point score per A-level student of 1,332. The tables rank all state and independent schools in England on a range of measures.

Headteacher Paul Evans, who steps down from his post at the end of the year, said: “I am delighted that the school has retained its position amongst the most academically successful schools in the country.”

Colyton Grammar School has a unique curriculum where pupils complete their GCSEs a year early, enabling them to enjoy a broad three-year sixth form programme, ensuring that they do far more than just pass examinations. Colyton pupils compete successfully to secure places in sought-after universities and on challenging courses.

Mr Evans added: “It is a privilege to see our students succeed academically whilst also developing as young adults, ready for the challenges of university and the world of work. In an increasingly difficult financial climate, we are sustaining the breadth and high levels of student academic achievement.”
