Ryde School are celebrating the best A Level results achieved when sitting public examinations since 2014.

16.9% of grades were A*s, 45.1% were A*- A, and 66.9% were A*- B with over a third of pupils achieving two A grades or better.

The IB grades issued earlier in the summer were also very strong with an average DP score of 34.25 points and an average of 197 UCAS points per pupil.

The IBCP grades were equally impressive with half of students achieving a double distinction or better in the BTEC part of their programme.

Looking at A Level, IBDP and IBCP results together, the average UCAS points per pupil is 145.5 which is just over the equivalent to AAA at A Level.

The vast majority of students who took A Levels received their first choice of university offers and almost all pupils who sat the two IB programmes also received their first choice university offers.

New Head Master Will Turner said: "This cohort has faced numerous challenges over the last two years so it is a credit to them and their teachers that such impressive results have been achieved.

"Pupils are going off to study a wide range of STEM courses ranging from medicine and dentistry to strategy, intelligence and security, electrical engineering and humanities courses such as history, English literature, geography and politics, philosophy and economics.

"We also have pupils leaving to study architecture, and art and design courses all of which reflects the diverse offerings fostered by the School.

He continued: "Credit must also go to my predecessor, Mark Waldron, for leading the School through the challenges of the last two years and ensuring that this year group received the best teaching possible despite the difficulties posed by the pandemic.

"It is also important to note that this is the first time this age group has sat public examinations given their GCSE year was in the midst of the pandemic.

"We all wish this cohort well as they now embark on their lives beyond the School."
