Secondary league tables 2011: Lowest GCSE results

This table lists the 200 state secondary schools in England with the lowest attainment at GCSE level.

The schools are ranked on the percentage of pupils attaining five A*-C passes in GCSE or equivalent qualifications, including maths and English GCSEs. The average number of points scored per pupil is then used as a tie break - point scores are given for each qualification.

Independent schools have been removed from this list. Schools marked AC are academies, schools with fewer than 30 pupils are not included.
