Rishworth School - GCSE Results 2016
Bumper grades at the top end
We are delighted with the results that have been achieved by our students in the GCSE exams. In addition to fantastic individual achievements at every level, as a cohort they have achieved the best set of top grades in recent years.
• 85% A* - C Grades (in the region of 30% above the national average)
• 32% of the students gained 3 or more A*s or As
• 73% of the students achieved an A or A*
• The highest academic achievers gained unbroken strings of A*-A grades
“I am delighted with the achievements of our GCSE pupils who have gained a fantastic set of results this year. The cohort worked extremely hard towards their exams and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on their success. They are a wonderful group of individuals with the potential to go on and achieve a great deal more in the future whatever they choose to do and wherever they decide to do it.
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.”
In the interests of students’ entitlement to privacy, and in the light of the responses received from parents to a school circular which asked for their views about the publication of examination results, Rishworth School is continuing its policy of not publishing without consent the results of individual students.
