It has been another successful year for GCSE results at Ridgeway High School, with 56% of students achieving 9-4 grades in mathematics and 68% in English.
Several students secured the higher 9-7 grades, including Jakub Tomaszewski, Daria Dawidowicz (both of whom achieved eleven GCSEs, six of which were at grade 7 or above), Olivia Wallace and Sean Robinson.
Tony Taylor, Headteacher, said: “I am delighted for the students who have had an anxious wait to see their results, as this is the first year of the new 9-1 exams across almost all subjects.
“Exam success is only achieved when staff and students work together with determination and commitment. In addition to working hard in class and at home, many of our Year 11s attended additional Saturday School lessons, so these results are thoroughly deserved. Well done to everyone. I wish them every success as they progress into the post-16 stage of their learning.”
Other highlights included 69% of students achieving 9-4 grades in computer science, 67% in religious education, 100% in drama and 62% in English literature.
