The Sunday Times launches 2018 school guide

Top performing schools across the country have been revealed in 'Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2018', published in the paper on 26 November.

The 25th edition of Parent Power identified the 2,000 highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their recent examination results. A fully searchable database by school name, local authority, town and postcode – with new regional rankings available for subscribers at thesundaytimes.co.uk/parentpower. 

As well as assessment of all academic results on a school-by-school basis, Parent Power enables parents to compare the performance of a given school with other schools in the same town, local authority or nationally. There are also live links to websites and most recent inspection reports.

Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the country's best schools. The rankings in the secondary school league tables are determined by the percentage of examination entries gaining A* to B grades at A-level this summer (which is given double weighting) and the percentage of entries returning A* and A grades at GCSE. They are published several weeks ahead of the official Government tables for secondary school performance.

All the data in this year's guide was compiled by Alastair McCall, Nick Rodrigues and Charlie Burt. Take a look at this year's edition above.
