Other than the top two schools, the rest of the top 17 were given four stars.

Three star grades were given to Woodford Halse, Brington, Crick, Staverton, Badby, The Abbey in Daventry, and Boddington.

Facloners Hill Junior Academy and Byfield were rated as one star.

Some schools in the area were not graded – due to a lack of data – so their place on the table is unknown. These include St James Infants, Falconers Hill Infants, DSLV, and Long Buckby Infants.
