Pupils Celebrate A-Level Results
Pupils at Rushcliffe School have been celebrating and looking ahead to their next steps as they collected their A level results this morning. Pupils leave the school to go onto a broad variety of apprenticeships, colleges, employers and universities.
Approximately a third of grades achieved were at grade A or A* giving students access to some of the most prestigious universities, including Oxbridge and the Russell Group, and competitive courses such as medicine and law. Around 85% of pupils are moving onto university either this September or after a gap year travelling and working. An increasing number of pupils have opted for higher apprenticeships, many at high profile companies, in fields such as engineering, sport, quantity surveying and computing. Several budding Artists will start on Art foundation courses in the coming weeks.
Damian Painton, Head of School, said “Students should feel proud of all they have achieved. A levels are demanding and these results come from a lot of hard work and commitment on the part of both students and staff. I wish every student the very best of luck for the future, whatever they are moving on to do, and hope they look back fondly on their time at Rushcliffe.”
Paul West, CEO of The Spencer Academies Trust, shared in the celebrations. "We are delighted for all the students who have achieved some exceptional grades. We wish each and every one of them the very best for their futures. We're proud that Rushcliffe continues to thrive as part of The Spencer Academies Trust and thank the staff for all of their continued hard work and commitment to our students"
