We are extremely proud of students’ achievements in their GCSE examinations.  With more challenging examinations across almost every subject, we are delighted that students’ achievements have been exceptional.  Reflecting our aspirational ethos, 26% of all grades achieved were above grade 7 with more than 30% achieving the very highest grades in Chemistry, Biology, French, Computer Science, Music, PE, Art and Drama.  Furthermore, 80% of all grades were above a grade 4, which is equivalent to a grade C with 75% of students achieving at least a grade 4 in both English and Maths.   Students enjoyed exceptional achievement in Food Preparation and Nutrition (90% grade 4 or above), Geography (75%), History (75%) and Physics (100%).

Jon Bell, Headteacher, commented, ‘Considering the additional demands placed on students this year with an increased number of exams, less coursework and a different grading structure, students have achieved exceptionally well.  This will be another year of students of all abilities making outstanding progress at Sir William Romney’s.  This is obviously down to the students’ own diligence and resilience but also reflects the extremely high standards of teaching and learning across Sir William Romney’s School.’
