    Which is the best?
    I know many private schools are also selective and it seems the only reasons many get better results than a comprehensive is that the required grades to get in are usually higher at sixth form as Westminster wants 6A*'s while the local comprehensive wants 8 A*-B and if you only take in top students then off course your results will be much better than a non-selective school?At least that is what I was told.

    I'd say grammar or private.
