Rushcliffe Pupils Celebrate GCSE Success

It has been a morning full of smiles, celebration and excitement at Rushcliffe School as pupils in year 11 have been collecting their GCSE results.

1Students performed well across the board with high levels of achievement in the core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) but also across a broad range of subjects including design technology, the humanities, physical education, media and the Arts – something reflective of the school’s desire to ensure that pupils study a broad curriculum and subjects that support the talents and aspirations of all.


Overall, nearly 40% of grades were at grade 7 or above and this year’s results mean that the school is likely to take in its  biggest ever year 12  cohort in September, with nearly 150 Rushcliffe year 11 students staying on and being joined by around 30 students from other local schools.  There was success too for those students who have chosen to move onto  colleges or other pathways with the overwhelming majority securing the grades they needed for their first choice courses,  apprenticeships or employment.

Damian Painton, Head of School, said “I am so pleased for all our students and hope they feel proud of what they have achieved. Their hard work  and the support of our incredible staff has enabled them to do very well indeed. Students have overcome significant challenges this year, both  individually and collectively, and have shown great resilience and determination. It is fantastic to think of the bright futures they will all have and I  wish them all every success as they move onto Sixth Form, college or the world of work.”

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"
