Redhill School once again celebrated some excellent GCSE results in the summer of 2017.
The new system for measuring a school’s success is via ‘Progress 8’, this measure compares the progress of Redhill students against all other students from similar starting points. The overall progress figure for Redhill was 0.17. This figure is above average and places us in the top 18% of schools in the country. Our overall attainment 8 score of 51.2 was also well above the national average of 44.2.

The 2017 English and mathematics exams were graded using numbers instead of letters. There are two levels of pass, 4+ is a standard pass, 5+ is a strong pass. Redhill performed well above the national averages for each of these threshold levels.

The English Baccalaureate is made up of the following qualifications (English literature or language, Mathematics, History or Geography, Science and a Modern Foreign Language). Redhill has always had a traditional and academic curriculum, this was reflected in our outcomes for the percentage of students attaining the English Baccalaureate. 47% of Redhill students achieved this threshold, this was 27.5 % above the national average. 56% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate at the standard pass threshold.

Well done to all our students and staff for their hard work and commitment in achieving an excellent set of results.
