RGS Worcester students set for bright futures – 2021 Examination results
At RGS Worcester, we were delighted to see the pupils achieve such impressive Public Examination results again this year. As we welcomed them into school on the two Results Days, unusually held in the same week this year, there were smiles all round as the students celebrated.
A Level and BTEC Exam Success
Close to one third of A Level Grades achieved by RGS Sixth Form students were at A*, with 92% of Grades awarded at A*, A or B Grades. 12 pupils achieved the superb results of three or four A* Grades at A Level and 38 students achieved at least three A*/A Grades. In the BTEC, all Grades were Distinction Stars, Distinctions or Merits, with 75% achieving the top Grades.
Headmaster, John Pitt, said, “With Digital Learning firmly established at RGS before the pandemic, we were able to keep teaching right through and the students achieved superb results. This Year group built on their excellent GCSE results pre-pandemic, and are now ready for the next stage in their lives. They have done exceptionally well in coping and excelling academically during such a difficult two years of Covid. I would like to congratulate the students and the teachers for excellent results to match their hard work and commitment during the most challenging time. We are very proud of all they have achieved.”
Superb GCSE Exam Results
Year Eleven pupils celebrated their GCSE results with a mixture of relief and pride that they achieved results at a high level. Nearly half of the Grades were at top Grades 8 and 9 and over 70% were at Grades 9 – 7 (the equivalent of an A Grade). With 100% of Grades 9-4 (Grade 4 is considered a Pass), the pupils performed exceptionally well.
Three pupils achieved the highest Grade 9s in all of their GCSE courses, 16 pupils achieved all 9-8 grades, and 59 pupils achieved 9-7 in at least 8 subjects.
Headmaster, John Pitt said, “Well done to everyone and, as they enter the Sixth Form, this Year Eleven Year group will achieve great things. We really look forward to the next two years as we come out of the pandemic and we can see them enjoy so many opportunities here at RGS Worcester.”
Due to the pandemic, all Public Exam Grades were awarded this year by the Examination Boards based on TAGs (Teacher Assessed Grades) which required a rigorous process of selecting key data from across the 2-year course. The Exam Boards then reviewed the process, took samples from every school and confirmed Grades.
Congratulations to all the pupils for their hard work and to the teachers for supporting them in a very challenging year.
