Royal GCSE students achieve strong performances in the even more challenging new national measures across a broad and demanding range of subjects.
A stunning set of students attained 9-7/A*-A grades with the highest performances in Modern Foreign Languages, chemistry, physics and maths. The on-going emphasis on STEM and the more challenging facilitating subjects, which are favoured by top universities, is reflected in a significant number of pupils achieving A*/A in chemistry, physics and biology, and the many stellar performances in a range of modern languages, as well as a further upward trend in mathematics. This set of GCSE results emphasises The Royal School’s excellent performance across key subjects and the focus on the development of the whole person in a broad range of subjects keeping doors open for applying to Russell Group and other universities in the future.
The majority of students will be staying on at The Royal to continue their A-Level studies in September. Some student highlights include Reema Pujari with six 9 grades, an 8 and two 6 grades; Ciana Hodgson achieved two 9 grades, four 8s, one A and two 6 grades; Lucy Ireland achieved three 9 grades, two 8s, a 7, two 6’s and an A grade and Daniel Johnson gained three 8s, three 7 grades, a 6 and two 5 grades. Daniel achieved these impressive results whilst being a member of the RWS Elite swim squad and one of our boarders. The support provided from House Parents in The Royal’s Boarding environment has enabled him to achieve excellent results preparing him for A Level studies at The Royal. The School is proud of all its students.
The Royal prides itself on its students’ progress as well as attainment, as demonstrated through the outcomes for all pupils. Equally important for the pupils is their wider personal development promoted through our enrichment programme which offers 70 activities beyond the classroom each week. This all prepares the students for the next stages in their academic careers and we wish them all well in their Sixth Form experience.
