A new comprehensive guide has shown that 10 Hertfordshire secondary schools are among the best in the country.The Real Schools Guide 2020, compiled by the Reach data unit, aims to go beyond traditional rankings to give a more complete picture of the best schools in the country.

The guide takes into account 51 different data points – including not only the GCSE results and Achievement 8 scores, but also factors such as Progress 8, student-teacher ratios and absence rates.

The Guide, now in its eighth year, has been praised by ministers and education experts. Former school minister David Laws called it “best tradition public service journalism.”

The Guide ranks 3,181 schools across the country, which also lets us know where each school ranks nationally.

Watford Grammar School for Girls tops the list as the best school in Herts, followed by Hockerill Anglo-European College and both ranked in the top 100 in the country.

Overall, the 78 schools in our county ranked very well, 10 ranking among the 200 best and 27 among the 500 best.

It also provides a broader context for the results, as some of those who ranked our 10 lowest-ranked students were only marginally outside the top two-thirds of schools in the country.
