Students at high-performing Rochester Grammar School (RGS) are celebrating today after achieving superb sixth form results, which have won them places at top universities.
The school maintained its track record of success with over two thirds of grades in A levels and IB A* to B or equivalent, and three students managing straight A* or A grades at A-Level.
The students’ fantastic results have seen them win places at some of the best universities in the country – including Cambridge, UCL, Durham, Warwick, Exeter, Surrey, Nottingham, Southampton, Queen Mary’s and Loughborough.
Some of the stellar individual A level results revealed today include:
RGS’s excellent results at A Level follow hot on the heels of its success in this year’s International Baccalaureate (IB), when students achieved world-class results – the overall average score was 36, equivalent to A*A*AA at A-Level. RGS’ IB students will now take up places at universities including Bath, London School of Economics, Warwick, King’s College London, Lancaster, Imperial College London and Bristol.
The school will offer the IB exclusively in its sixth form from September 2020.
RGS is a member of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT), a family of 17 high-performing schools across the South East that prides itself on providing a high-quality education to all students.
Joanna Wadey, Acting Head of School at Rochester Grammar School, said:
“We could not be prouder of our students this year, first in IB and now A levels. Today’s results cap a fantastic year in which our sixth form students have worked so hard and seen that rewarded.
“I would also like to pay tribute to our dedicated and inspiring teachers, and our ever-supportive parents, who together help our students to realise their potential. We look forward to building on our success in the IB and at A Level this year and going from strength to strength.”
Stuart Gardner, Chief Executive Officer of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, said:
“The calibre of results that this year’s cohort of students has achieved is yet again so impressive, and reflects the huge effort and dedication they put into their studies.
“Our students are a real credit to the school and the Trust, and we are all very much looking forward to seeing where their journeys take them next. A big thank you must also go out to all our staff and our wonderful community of parents and carers, who have supported our students the whole way.”
