The Ridgeway School and Sixth Form College celebrated many successes in today’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 97%.
30% of students achieved an A or A* grade, an increase of 7% on 2018, and 54% of students achieved an A* to B grade, an increase of 9% on last year’s results.
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 or in employment or 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 excellent results. I would also like to recognise the parents for their support in achieving these results, as R6 is all about partnership working.”
