A Level Results 2017

Raynes Park High School is proud to congratulate students on the achievements of this year’s cohort. The A-level and Applied Courses have maintained the high standards set over the years and reflect a tremendous amount of hard work and commitment from students and staff, continuing the trend of improved performance in several subject areas. Another excellent pass rate of 99.7% was achieved, reflecting the school’s approach of giving borderline candidates an opportunity to achieve a grade at A-Level. Almost a third of the cohort achieved the top grades with 31% of all subjects taken passed with grades A*- A, a 10% improvement on last year, and 89% of students who took Applied Courses achieving Distinction*/Distinction.

 

The Headteacher, Mrs Heard, welcomed the results:

“We are delighted that our results continue to be extremely good for a wide range of students and we are very proud of our students’ achievements.  As a comprehensive school, we focus on achieving excellent results whilst also delivering positive value-added scores. Our students have worked incredibly hard and shown exceptional commitment to their studies, whilst engaging in a range of extra-curricular and social activities.”

 

Raynes Park High School prides itself on its A-Level and Vocational offer, ensuring students have an appropriate pathway of study to follow that enables them to secure places at universities of their choice. As well as going on to Higher Education, RPHS students are also embarking on apprenticeships in a range of employment sectors, gap years and following specific pathways at specialist institutions.

 

Mrs Heard said: “We believe our success has been the consistent focus on the standard of teaching and the wellbeing of the students.  An excellent team works with the students, developing a broad range of skills and responsibilities but also identifying concerns at an early stage and offering guidance.

 

I would like to offer students our warmest congratulations and, on their behalf, thank all of the teachers for their contribution to making these results possible. We wish our Year 13 students every success in the future”.
