Banding: Find out where your school ranks

Secondary schools have been placed in bands between 1 and 5. Photo: PA

The Welsh Government has today published its latest rankings for more than 200 secondary schools across Wales.

The so-called 'banding' system ranks them between Band 1 - the best performing - and Band 5 - where a school needs additional support.

They are graded according to a set of measures, including GCSE results, attendance, performance in certain subjects, and the number of pupils from poorer backgrounds.

Teaching unions have criticised the system as 'volatile', with the majority of schools moving bands each year.

The Welsh Government says the system makes it possible to identify schools which are most in need of support.
