Sunday Times Top 20 Irish Schools 2013

Each year the Sunday Times produces a table of the top secondary schools in Ireland . They haven’t got much information to help them determine the best schools since Leaving Cert results aren’t published .  So they rank the schools on the percentage of pupils going to University.  This may not be a good indicator of the “best” schools – but it’s what they use – and here are their top 20 schools for 2013 .. the figure on the end is the percentage entering University.
