During a period of significant educational change and development in Key stages 4 and 5, Rutlish continues to produce strong academic results.
Key Stage 4 – GCSE
At GCSE 70% of boys passed 9-4 (including A*-C) with English and Maths. An impressive 26% passed at 9-7 (including A*A) and 54% at 9-5 (including A*- B). As a non-selective Merton state school we were very pleased that 63% of boys passed English or English Literature (9-5) and 61% in Maths.
We would also like to acknowledge and celebrate the performance of some of our very top students. In 2017 only 2000 people nationwide achieved grade 9 across Maths, English Language and English Literature. Two of them are Rutlish students and they have now joined RR6; well done Oliver Coughlan and Ewan Van Der Poel. In total 32 students have achieved 8 qualifications at the equivalent of the old A*/A and 54 students achieved 5 qualifications at the equivalent of the old A*/A.
In the government’s EBACC 35% of students achieved this award.
Key Stage 5
In our sixth-from, RR6, 30% of students achieved A*/A, 59% A*-B and 82% A*-C.
Overall the boys achieved a 99.3% pass rate, with 78% of all examination results graded A*-C and 30% graded A*/A.
83% of students had an unconditional university place with 25% having accepted unconditional offers from prestigious universities to study subjects that range from Computer Science to Criminology, from Engineering to Geography. We were also delighted that our 2015 Head Boy, Mohammed Hassan has accepted a place at Homerton College, Cambridge and that Chris Gora’s A*AA will take him to Bristol to study Computer Science.
