Record year for RGS Worcester GCSE students

22 Aug 2013

RGS Worcester students were celebrating record results today after receiving their GCSE results.

In the national context of uncertainty about grades or ‘turbulence’, no less than 71% of GCSEs at RGS were graded A* or A, which is the best set of results in the school’s history.
The overall pass rate was 98% at grade C or above, with 99.1% of pupils attaining 5 A*-C grades. 40 pupils attained a clean sweep of nine or more A* / A grades.

Some of the strongest results came in core subjects such as Maths, English and the three Sciences, while there were also outstanding performances in subjects such as Latin, Art, Music, Textiles, RS, Geography and Design Technology.

Headmaster Andy Rattue was very pleased indeed: “I offer my congratulations to our students, who are a delightful group of young people. These are the best GCSE results in the school’s history, our previous best being 66.5% A* and A grades way back in 2003. The results are all the more remarkable when you consider how much these students have also achieved beyond the classroom in sport, drama, music and adventurous outdoor pursuits.”
