The R6 Sixth Form at The Ridgeway School celebrated many successes in last August’s A-level and AS level results, marking yet another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at the school, with an overall pass rate of 96%.
23% of students achieved an A or A* grade, an increase of 10% on last year, and 13% achieved AAB or higher (with two in facilitating subjects), an increase of 8% on 2017.
James Povoas, Principal, said: “We’re delighted to have record numbers of students achieving higher-grade passes. Our students can look forward to fantastic futures — whether at university, in employment, or in apprenticeships and training. I want to congratulate them all. As ever, I want to thank our wonderful staff who have been instrumental in helping our sixth formers achieve these great results. I’d also like to recognise the parents for their support in achieving these results as R6 is all about partnership working.”
