We were very pleased indeed with our results. Here are some statistics:
It was particularly pleasing to be able to make so many Academic Excellence Awards at the start of the new school year. These Awards go to those students, now in our Lower Sixth, who achieved 7 or more As or A*s at GCSE. This year we had 8 students who received the award.
At Rishworth we have – and are committed to having - not only academically-gifted students but also a wide spectrum of aptitudes, including some pupils who are singularly disadvantaged – for example by not having English as their first, or even their second, language. This makes our results all the more pleasing and the pupils and the staff all the more deserving of praise. However good the statistics are, what we really care about – and what we believe parents and pupils really care about - is how each pupil fares relative to his or her own potential. And that is where Rishworth truly excels.
