GCSE results show that the top schools teach Latin

Just as with the A level results, so with the GCSE results as analysed by The Times, the message is that the top schools teach Latin.

93 of the first 100 in the Times list have Classics departments. I give the top 25, of which 24 teach Latin. I have added an L to the 24, after the three columns showing number of candidates, A* percentage, A and A* percentage. The top 25 schools are:
