PRESENTATION College at the Mardyke in Cork is the best performing secondary school in the country, according to an exclusive analysis of seven years data on entry to third level.

The school is just one of the members of the elite ‘100pc club’, the seven schools that have placed 100pc of their leaving certificate students in a university or other third level institution every year for the past seven years.

In the most extensive and detailed study of its kind – published in today’s Sunday Independent - our team of data scientists, writers and expert commentators have assembled and analysed the performance of the 730 schools from across the nation whose students completed the leaving certificate examinations between 2009 and 2015.

From the select membership of the ‘100pc club’ to the schools that have shown the most improvement, the analysis provides a unique insight into Ireland’s second level system.

It also details exactly how fee-paying schools perform in comparison to non-fee paying schools and how pupils in single sex schools fare compared to those in co-ed schools.
