How to pick a good state school

No school will claim anything less than the best, but the contradiction of rising examination results against reports of failing schools is a clear indication that your politics are being played - a good rating isn't always what's best for you or your child. A significant proportion of results just above the national average can mask a conceit to deliver only the bare minimum - helpful for a child who achieves below this, less so for one who surpasses it.  The distribution of results at every grade will show which abilities are best catered for. Sudden improvements can indicate a shift in the goal posts, so check whether a new qualification kick-starts or hides real achievement, before deciding what meets your needs.
