Commenting on the results councillor Liz Eyre, Worcestershire County Council's cabinet member for Children and Families, said: "The figures released indicate an improving picture for Worcestershire with 62.9 per cent of students attaining five or more A* to C GCSEs including English and maths compared to 60.7 per cent the previous year, which remains above the national average of 60.6 per cent.
"I'm really pleased that schools in Worcestershire are continuing to perform well and these results reflect the hard work and commitment of students, staff as well as those who have supported them.
"These tables should reinforce the confidence that parents have in our schools and the standard of the provision for their children."
Schools with no data are excluded from the tables for several reasons.
Many independent and state schools score zero (or very low scores) if they enter all or most pupils for alternative qualifications that are not accredited by the Government.
