BLOGThe UK’s Best Secondary Schools

Wilson’s School, an all-boys state secondary school located in Wallington, South London, has achieved remarkable success in academic performance, surpassing prestigious private institutions like Eton and Winchester College. The school was named The Sunday Times Parent Power Secondary School of the Year 2024, marking a historic achievement for state education. Wilson’s, a boys’ grammar school with a selective admission process based on the 11-plus examination, rose to third place in the combined league tables this year, up from its 11th position in 2022.

Although private girls’ schools like St Paul’s Girls’ School and Guildford High School took the top spots in state and private school exam performance, Wilson’s remarkable performance marks a significant milestone in the 30-year history of Parent Power. This year’s A-level and GCSE results have returned to pre-pandemic levels in England, with schools that maintained high-quality teaching during the pandemic emerging as top performers.

Headmaster Nathan Cole attributed the school’s success to its dedication to maintaining academic standards and student welfare, even during the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. Wilson’s managed to keep tutor group sizes small by having senior leaders also teach lessons, ensuring personalised attention for students. Cole emphasised the school’s motto, “Non sibi sed omnibus” (“Not for oneself but for all”), reflecting its commitment to collective success.

While concerns persist about funding shortages in the state sector and potential tax increases in the independent sector, schools continue to prioritise student well-being. Many schools are focusing on building resilience and self-care among students, offering mentoring programs, motivational talks, and workshops to address stress and anxiety. Additionally, there is a growing emphasis on sustainability and career guidance embedded into the curriculum, reflecting students’ interests and concerns about the environment and future career prospects.
