In London, 61% of non-grammar school, state-educated pupils left school with five good GCSEs compared to 46% in Lincolnshire (2015 data). London is not only the highest performing region (in terms of having the best GCSE results for 7 consecutive years), but London's non-grammar, school state-educated children perform better than those in areas with high amounts of grammar schools like Lincolnshire.
