Rugby High School celebrates 100 per cent pass rate in new GCSE qualifications

Andy Morris 24th Aug, 2017   0

YEAR 11 students at Rugby High School are celebrating a 100 per cent pass rate in the new English Language, English Literature and Maths GCSE qualifications.

A total of 45 entries (15.9 per cent) were awarded the new top grade of 9 (higher than the old A* grade), while 74 per cent of entries were awarded grade 7 or above (the equivalent of A*-A on the old grading system).

Headteacher Charlotte Marten said: “The new qualifications are very demanding and a shortage of assessment material has increased the challenge.

“Students and staff can feel incredibly proud of these results. They represent a lot of hard work.




“Our students are in a very good position as they take the next step in their education and have a wide range of choices open to them, both now and in the future.”
