Proud Pupils Collect GCSE Results

Published by The Royal Masonic School for Girls on Thursday 24th of August 2023

The New Mark Hall was buzzing with anticipation and excitement this morning as pupils, family and friends gathered together to celebrate our Year 11 cohort achieving a fantastic set of GCSE results.


We’re proud to share that 36% of results were graded 9-8 (formerly A*), 56% were graded 9-7 (formerly A*-A), and 97% were graded 9-4 (formerly A*-C).


Headteacher, Kevin Carson, said, “This is a fantastic set of results from a large year group who have grown together through rising to tough challenges during Covid. I am so very pleased for the students, their parents, and teachers.


For 56% of all RMS grades to be 9-7 is exceptional compared both to the national average of 22% and to the independent school average of 46%


- Kevin Carson, Headteacher
Coming on the back of A Level results last week that placed RMS in the top 9% of schools for academic value added, our GCSE grades are a further testament to the truly excellent talent and dedication of RMS pupils and staff. I am now really looking forward to seeing these students flourish in our new Sixth Form centre.”


Head of Senior School, Rachel Bailey, added, “I am so proud of our Year 11 pupils. They have worked incredibly hard for these exams and I am delighted that their efforts have paid off and it was wonderful to see so many happy pupils and their families this morning.


This year group have had a less than conventional run up to their GCSE courses and with the national narrative of ‘learning loss’ and reduction in top grades it has been fantastic to see our Year 11’s have risen to the challenge and performed exceptionally well. Almost half the year group achieved a 9 in at least one subject, a truly remarkable feat when you factor in that they will have been studying 9 or 10 subjects and have to divide their time across them all.”
