Durham Johnston, a comprehensive non-selective school, has brushed aside competition from feepaying and selective institutions to enter the Financial Times survey of 100 top schools at number 99.

The FT (Oct 3, p6) reported that its survey, based on

performance at A-level, found that the Durham school achieved a 99.4 per cent pass rate at A-level, with pupils being awarded 151 A grades and 83 B grades and nine winning places to Oxford and Cambridge.

The achievement, said the paper, mirrors the success of the best state

schools - the selective grammars which outperformed famous private schools such as Ampleforth, Charterhouse and Harrow.
