Redhill School pupils and staff celebrate outstanding GCSE results summer 2018
Redhill pupils achieved excellent results in the GCSE exams this summer across a wide range of subjects. The majority of exam qualifications have become increasingly difficult with new specifications and grading in subjects; but Redhill pupils responded magnificently to the challenge and recorded very good grades.
Core subject areas achieved some very high results with 84% of Redhill pupils leaving with a standard pass in English and 80% of pupils achieved a standard pass in Mathematics. A striking 81% of our pupils also achieved two standard grades or above in science subjects. The percentage of pupils gaining a standard pass in both English and Mathematics is 75%.
Results for Triple Science are excellent with 53% of the grades awarded in Biology, Chemistry and Physics being a 7 to 9 grade. The DFE gold standard English Baccalaureate was highly impressive with 45% of Redhill students gaining this qualification. This figure again puts Redhill significantly above the national average for pupils gaining the English Baccalaureate.
The top 12 pupils in the school this year achieved between them 44 Grade 9’s and 47 Grade 8’s and 31 grade 7’s overall. Our highest achieving boy, Ryan Prins achieved a brilliant 8 grade 9’s and 3 grade 8’s in his range of subjects. Naomi Tromans and Anna White, our top achieving girls, gained between them 13 grade 9’s and 7 grade 8’s in their subjects.
Headteacher, Chris McGrail, commented, “These are brilliant results. We are delighted with the fantastic achievements of our pupils this year. A large number of students have achieved top grades in their subjects and are now going onto the courses they have chosen. I am very proud of every pupil who has left us this year to pursue the next stage of their education.”
Staff and pupils celebrated together on 23rd August the GCSE results day.
