Our Year 11 students had much to celebrate this morning as we congratulated them on achieving their GCSE and BTEC results. They have coped amazingly well with the disruptions and many changes due to the Covid19 pandemic, showing true resilience throughout the two years and the exam season. Students have been awarded excellent sets of grades which build upon the school’s previous achievements as Rutlish remains one of the highest achieving state boys’ schools in the country. Councillor Sally Kenny met some students whilst they collected their results.
Overall, our students have achieved 30% 9-7 grades and 88% 9-4 grades with 93% of students achieving English GCSE and 87% achieving Mathematics. I congratulate the following boys who attained 10 or more 9-7 GCSE grades: Abid, Aidan, Amir, Daniel George, Hazeem, Hunbal, Igor, Joshua, Matthew, Roheel, Stanley, Stefan, Tae Joon, Ted, Tommy, William and Zayd. A further 28 students were rewarded with seven or more Grade 9-7, well done.
The majority of the cohort has chosen to stay with us and have enrolled on to courses at RR6. There are some students who have chosen alternative destinations to undertake a range of exciting courses including rugby scholarships, football and basketball apprenticeships. The staff and I send our best wishes to all of our students.
Aspiration is an integral part of the Rutlish School vision, along with respect, equality and learning. We are really pleased with every single success story, and as a comprehensive school we are proud of the attainment and personal bests achieved by so many students who worked so hard to meet their potential; we applaud you all. Once again, congratulations and very well done!
