IT’S been another record-breaking year for Ridgeway High School, with every child achieving fantastic results.
For the third year in a row, every student in Year 11 has achieved at least five good GCSEs A* to C grade or above.
In July this year, an Ofsted inspection team found the school to be good with many outstanding features, in particular the proportion of students achieving five or more GCSE passes A* to C, including English and Maths, which were judged outstanding.
Newly-appointed headteacher, Tony Taylor, commented: “I am delighted that for three years in a row, every student has achieved at least five or more passes at A* to C.
“In addition, each year at least three out of every five students also achieved this key government benchmark including the subjects English and Maths.”
Not surprisingly two pupils with 100% attendance were among the highest grades.
Hannah Yardley achieved 11 A grades and seven B grades and Joshua Bonsu achieved eight A grades and six B grades.
Jane Gordon, Chair of Governors at Ridgeway High, added: “As well as the normal school day, it is all the extra intervention sessions, every evening after school, weekends and holiday booster classes.
“A tremendous effort by everyone with results thoroughly deserved.”
In May, the Treasury Department approved funding for a new school building for Ridgeway High School, to commence in the next academic year.
Pupils and staff are excited at the opportunity to be involved in the design process.
To find out more about what Ridgeway can offer for your child, the school is holding a series of open events, starting with their Open Evening on Thursday, September 12, at 6.30pm, followed by a second open evening to be held on Thursday, October 10.
