    You're forgetting about different type/standard of the intakes to schools to start with, especially between selective schools and non-selective schools. And not all should be aiming to send their kids to top unis. Every school has its own mission, commitment and a raison d'etre in the society.
    There're many students who need an educational ground that is not as vigorous and demanding as competive schools.....and students with genuine academic potential need the environment that helps to achieve their full potential.

    You have to have both. (Something a certain tribe of the left wing doesn't seem to understand or in complete denial. )
    Totally agree with " horses for courses" and the "not one size fits all" point of view. In addition academia is not the only route to success.It is also tue that state non selective schools will have a more diverse cohort in terms of academic ability.

    However, if you have genuine academic ability and go to one of these schools, there are more challenges to meet in terms of an Oxbridge application. The first one being to get them to apply at all! State schools could do better here.

    Yes - but not yet. You'll have to wait for CambStats to be updated - will take months.

    Wow! That's an impressive success rate this year! Well done
    Yeah we have ended up being quite a good year there probably would've been more Oxbridge applicants but a lot decided to do medicine and so didn't want to apply because it's less practical in Oxbridge.

    School is very happy to say the least, especially since we're a state school running out of money :mmm:
