THE CLASS of 2019 celebrated GCSE success at Rugby High School.
Some 98 per cent of all entries were awarded a grade 4 or better, while 69 per cent scored grade 7 or better. 32 per cent of students got an average of a grade 8 across all of the GCSEs that they sat.
Head teacher Charlotte Marten said: “We are delighted by our students’ results. They have worked so hard to achieve these. Strong GCSE results put students in a strong position whether they are choosing to continue with A-Level studies, embarking on an apprenticeship or a vocational course, or moving into employment.
“This group of students have exciting futures ahead of them. They have lots of transferrable skills from all the other activities that they have undertaken over the course of the last few years – Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, a part in the school play, charity fundraising, and being a member of school and county sports teams.
“Well done, Class of 2019. We look forward to welcoming many of you back into the Sixth Form in September together with students – both boys and girls – from other schools in Rugby and the surrounding area to start preparing for A-Levels.”
