Rishworth School Year 13 Results
No cohort since the Second World War has been subject to such uncertainty as the Year 13 who left Rishworth School in July 2021. We have to acknowledge their extraordinary achievements, not only academically, but in all other spheres of their lives, in and out of School. We are always incredibly proud of the achievements of our students– this year we have even more cause to celebrate than ever, given the superb results achieved by our students in post-compulsory education.
We achieved a 100% A-Level pass rate across seventeen subject areas, with nearly a half at A* and more than two thirds at A* - A, and 78% at A*- B. In Music, Drama, and in Languages, all grades were at A*. Students also excelled in STEM subjects; all Biology students gained grades A* – B, with 60% achieving A*; in Chemistry, two thirds of the students were graded at A*; half of the Rishworth mathematicians achieved the highest grade, as did nearly half the physicists. Our Business students were equally successful with 100% gaining between A* - C grades and, again, nearly half at A*. More than 70% of Psychology A Level students gained an A*, as did nearly half of the Business students.
In BTEC subjects, delivered at Rishworth in Design Technology, Food and Sports Science, 65% of grades achieved were at the highest levels possible. In Sports, 87% gained the highest possible grades. Similarly, the Extended Project Qualification saw a 100% pass rate, with 92% at A* - B.
Overall, 56% of Rishworth students gained all A-Levels at grades at A* or A.
