What is the best school in london

Ranking and overview of the 30 best private schools!

The UK is often considered one of the best countries for secondary education. This recognition is more than deserved - because the British Isles is home to some of the best boarding schools in the world. Children from all over the world come here to make sure they are accepted at elite universities like Oxford, Cambridge or even Ivi League.

Regardless of whether you want a private school or an independent school institute for your child, or whether you cannot choose between urban, suburban or rural schools - our exclusive ranking will help you!

The ranking of our team of experts will give parents as well as children an overview so that they can decide which of the top 30 boarding schools is the right choice and which one can best achieve their future goals in life.

When parents are trying to find the best school for their child, we are often asked what percentage of graduates is accepted from each school at Oxford or Cambridge - England's two top universities. In 2013, the average percentage was 18%, which is many times higher than that of public schools. This percentage increases dramatically at some schools, like the Westminster School in London - with these schools the acceptance rate is a great 44%!

The second area that parents tend to worry about is A-Levels. This is also the area in which the schools excel with their excellent academic programs. Some of these programs focus on the unique skills and talents of each student, promoting them to reach their highest potential.

The average value achieved by these 30 schools is 72 - although most of them exceed this value and are in the 90 to 99 point range. This means that the students are very good at the A-Levels and therefore have greater chances of being able to attend the university of their choice.

The top 3 schools in 2013 were: Wycombe Abbey School with 99 points and Westminster and St. Paul’s School in London, both with 98 points. In fourth place was Downe House School with 95 points.

The third area that parents tend to think about is class size. On average, the classes in these top 30 schools are smaller than 12 students per class. At this point, however, we would like to emphasize that small classes are no guarantee of better qualifications. For example, St. Paul’s School achieved the second-highest result in 2013 with a class size of 18 students per class in the A-Levels, while Christ’s Hospital could not keep up with a class size of less than 11 students.

Much more important than the class size is the matriculation of each school and at the same time the biggest difference to the public schools can be found here. The average number of students per school is less than 1,000, which means that teachers get to know their students on a more personal level and therefore also know where the strengths and weaknesses of each student lie. These aspects are especially important as they can help students improve and reach their full potential.

Fourth, and probably one of the most important areas, is the cost of schooling in the UK. However, family options have been expanded in most schools offering day and boarding classes; especially for families who are considering moving, but still want to see their child without compromising their education. Average tuition for day schools is under £ 17,000 and boarding school fees are under £ 30,000 per year.
