Rishworth School is celebrating after another successful year for its GCSE students.

The GCSE pass-rate at A* to C was achieved by 81 per cent of pupils and 80 per cent of pupils attained five or more A* to C grades.

Almost 70 per cent of students experienced what it is like to gain an A or A* with 34 per cent of the cohort gaining three or more A*s or As.

A student in year seven attained an A* in GCSE German and the school almost had a 100 per cent pass rate year ten students who took their core science GCSE a year early.

Alastair Gloag, headmaster of Rishworth School, said: “I am delighted with the achievements of our GCSE pupils who have gained a fantastic set of results this year. The cohort worked extremely hard towards their exams and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on their success. They are a wonderful group of individuals with the potential to go on and achieve a great deal more in the future whatever they choose to do and wherever they decide to do it.”

“At Rishworth we have – and are committed to having - not only academically-gifted students but also a wide spectrum of aptitudes, including some pupils who are singularly disadvantaged – for example by not having English as their first, or even their second, language. However good the statistics are, what we really care about – and what we believe parents and pupils really care about - is how each pupil fares relative to his or her own potential.”
