"Rutlish School should be congratulated for their stunning achievement in improving their GCSE results. Rutlish School has proved itself to be one of the best schools in the country at improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Rutlish School’s success”. 
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT

Students make outstanding progress and in many subjects progress is above the national average. Ofsted found "staff, pupils and governors are ambitious and committed to ensuring that the school, provides an excellent education."

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent changes to the summer 2020 exam series there is no performance data published for 2019-2020.
