Ratton School is celebrating an improvement in its GCSE results following a disappointing dip last year.

Last year just 55 percent of students got A*-C grades in five or more subjects, including English and maths.

But this year that figure has jumped to 64 percent - the same figure achieved in 2013.

Huxley Knox-Macaulay, headteacher, “We have made tremendous progress this year and these results are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our students and dedicated staff combined with the support of parents and carers.

“A large number of students achieved A and A* grades at Ratton this year and the following students achieved at least 10 A/A* grades - Christie Groom (13) , Paul Dyer (12), Sarah Holden (12) Martin Peles (11), Aymen Qader (11), Beth Tagg (11), Ben Williamson (11), Lara Davis (10), Ella Hide (10) and Neve Lawrence (10). 

“There were also many other notable successes where our students made significant progress over their time with us. 

“We wish all our outgoing Year 11 students the best of luck with future study and careers.”
