A Level Results
Today, Ruislip High School celebrated the achievement of our outgoing Year 13 students on their A Level Results Day. As a school, we believe that hard work equals success and the A Level and BTEC results attained by our students exemplifies this, with 40% of all grades awarded to students being A*-A, and 85% of grades at A*-C. Our students' results will mean they will go on to a wide range of exciting destinations including studying at a range of prestigious universities and undertaking apprenticeships.
In particular, we are proud to announce that several of our students will be leaving us to join Oxford and Cambridge universities. Emily P will be reading Earth Sciences at Oxford University. She told us: “I am absolutely over the moon. Mostly, I am grateful for all of the support that my teachers have given me. After my PPE exams, I was worried I would not get the grades I needed to attend Oxford. However, my teachers rallied around me and gave me the support I needed to cross the finishing line. I am so excited about my next step!”
Katerina, who will be reading Architecture at Cambridge in September, was equally as overjoyed with her results. She said: “I mainly feel relieved and am still wondering if my results are a glitch! But seriously, I am so happy now I have my results and I am optimistic about my upcoming future at Cambridge. I want to thank my subject teachers: Mr Gould, Miss Hill, Mrs Lawerence, Mr Hankin and Ms Davison for all of their support. I would also like to thank Ms Horton, Head of Sixth Form, for all of her help with my university application.”
Another happy student was Hitul, who will be studying medicine at Birmingham university. He said: “Thank you to my teachers for their help. In particular, to the sixth form team for the extra support they gave when helping me to prepare for medicine applications. I have loved my time at Ruislip High School and I will miss the school.”
Beyond our university successes, we also have a number of students who have gained places on prestigious apprenticeships, including Rishley, who is beginning an apprenticeship with a leading London law firm, which will allow him to study towards a degree and qualify as a solicitor whilst working.
This is also the first year the school has offered a vocational pathway, allowing students to study three BTEC courses, and we are delighted that all students attained their BTEC qualifications.
Ruislip High School is a place that is in and for the community and one of our students who embodies this value is Mohammed, who joined us in Year 11 after moving to the UK from Spain. Mohammed faced tackling a new environment, a new language and having to make new friends and connections, all whilst studying for his GCSEs and A Levels. He is leaving Ruislip High School with A*A*A* grades in mathematics, physics and computer science, and we are so proud of him. He said: “My time at the school has been great. When I first moved here from Spain, my English was not very good and at first I struggled. I am so pleased by how much the teachers and students at Ruislip High School were there to support me. This is a really great school that wants all students to succeed.”
Overall, we are proud of all our students and their perseverance in what has been a challenging time for them. We hope that all of them are successful in whichever path they choose to take and we wish them all the best for the future.
