ONCE again the partnership between pupils, parents and school pays off with even more students achieving good GCSE passes at Rawlett.
Despite completely new English and Maths courses 64% of pupils achieved 5 standard GCSE passes including English and Maths compared to 61% in 2016.
This is an even greater achievement for everyone given the harder content and new grading scales this year.
A spokesperson for Rawlett told Tamworth Informed: “We are very proud of all our students who worked so hard to achieve their best. Amongst so many great results there are a number of students who do stand out.”
Evan Shipman achieved grade 9s in English Language, English Literature and Maths along with 5A* and 2 As. Tyla Sleet and Gregory Stokes also gained the new grade 9 in both English Language and Literature.
Grade 9 is the highest grade possible for these new qualifications and compared to the old grading system places these pupils in the top 20% of passes at an old A* grade nationally.
Oliver Lockwood, Hannah Turnbull, Ellen Statham and Harry Heeley made significantly better progress than national averages would suggest, achieving 2 grades higher across all their subjects than similar students would be expected to do nationally.
Mr Johnson, Associate Headteacher added that “Partnership remains key to our continued success and I’d once again like to congratulate pupils, staff and parents on a great set of results.”
