About The Perse

Exam Performance 2015

In 2015, more than three-quarters of Perse A level entries were A* or A and 60% of Perse students achieved 3 or more A* or A grades. In 2015, 94% of GCSE entries were A* - A and The Perse was the top co-ed school in both The Times and The Telegraph GCSE league tables.

'Exceptional' and 'excellent'

The Perse was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in February 2016. The School secured a clean sweep of the top ‘excellent’ score in all aspects, and the highest ‘exceptional’ grade for pupil achievement.

University success

In 2016, 42 students gained places at Oxbridge. The Sutton Trust identified us as the most successful school or college in the region for getting pupils into the top 30 universities.
