Students at Rugby School are celebrating after nearly half of all entries (49 per cent) were awarded A*s, while close to 80 per cent of all entries received an A* or A.

A total of 42 students secured 8 A*s or more, and over 60 per cent of the year group (90 out of 146) achieved a minimum of 9 A*s and As.

Particular highlights this year included the Science results in which 61 per cent of all entries received A*s. Biology led the way with 89 A*s out of 133 entries.

The results mean that the last three years of GCSE results have been the best in the School’s history, with over half of all GCSEs being awarded an A* over this period.

Head Master Peter Green said: “These are an exceptional set of GCSE results which reflect the hard work and determination of students and staff alike. I am delighted that their efforts have been rewarded.

“Next year reforms to GCSE will start to take effect at Rugby with the move to numeric grading. The strength and consistency of the School’s results over the last three years shows how well Rugby has done under the current system of exams and means that we are well-placed to thrive under the reformed system.”
