GCSE Results 2017

We are very proud of the performance of all Ridgeway students in this year’s GCSE. Students and teachers have worked incredibly hard in preparing for these exams, achieving some excellent results.

We are really pleased that the effort put in has enabled 71% of our students to achieve the standard pass (4-9) in English and Maths, with 69% achieving 5 A*-C/4-9.  In the new format, Maths and English GCSE (1-9) 31% achieved a 7+ (Grade A or better) in Maths and 22% in English.

The performance of our high attaining pupils are particularly pleasing with students achieving 16 grade 9 (top grade) across English, English Literature and Maths papers.

Principal James Povoas says, “I am delighted with our students’ achievements. Last year we had the best Maths results across Swindon schools and have been able to improve on this in the context of the new GCSE in English and Maths. 71% of students achieving a pass in both English and Maths (84% in English and 79% in Maths) reflects the exceptional work of students and staff. We are looking forward to celebrating with our students and welcoming them back into our 6th form in September.”
