The list of independent schools which are included in the 16-18 performance tables for 2010 and 2017 are attached in Annex A. This list was generated from the published school performance tables data which can be found at: https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/download-data.

Ministers and officials have had no discussions with Rugby School about reports of their wish to withdraw from the 16-18 performance tables.

There is no process by which independent or state-funded schools can ask to withdraw from performance tables. Performance tables are an important way of providing information to parents and the wider public about school and college performance.
