GCSE RESULTS: Half of grades A* or A
Today pupils at Rendcomb College are picking up their long-awaited GCSE results.
This year, the number of A* and A grades obtained equals nearly half of all results which continues the school’s track record of improving GCSE results year on year for the last four years.
In individual subjects, 85% of pupils gained an A* or A in French while more than three quarters achieved the top grades in German.
Musicians at Rendcomb College will be particularly pleased with 90% obtaining an A* or A in their examinations.
Computing students also hit the mark with 55% gaining an A* or A.
15% of pupils achieved straight A* or A grades.
Rendcomb College, known for its wide-ranging and inclusive approach to education, builds on last week's stellar A Level results where the average set of grades was AAA with 95% making it into their chosen universities.
Headmaster Rob Jones said: “I am very pleased with today’s results as they reflect how our focus on each individual, and their character, sees them achieve both in and out of the classroom.”
Rob continued: “Our Sixth Form cohort this year is set to be stronger than ever and I am looking forward to following our pupils’ progress in their final two years at Rendcomb College.”
