The tables show the number of pupils at the end of key stage 4 achieving (a) an A* or A grade at GCSE and (b) an A* to C grade at GCSE in each subject in the last five years. Also shown are the percentages of these pupils who studied at comprehensive, independent and grammar schools and are placed in the House Libraries. These figures are not included for further mathematics, as this is not available at GCSE level.
