Empowering Everyone to Achieve

Exams Results


"Some truly outstanding results this year have been achieved through the hard work and determination of our staff and students.  Congratulations!” said Mrs McLintock, Headteacher.  "This success can be clearly seen in the school’s consistent improvement, resulting in 33 grade 9’s across 11 different subjects including English, Maths and Triple Science.  The grade 9’s are only awarded to the absolute top students across the country, meaning that a number of our students were in the top 3-6% in their subject, in England.  In addition, we got 69 grade 8's and are proud that every BTEC subject got at least one Distinction* with the students achieving a total of 29 Distinction*.  Amazing results!"

"Our students have worked hard and been determined to succeed; it was a pleasure to see them grow over the past year to gain such well-deserved results.  I am looking forward to seeing so many of them staying in our sixth form, where in addition to the A-Level and BTEC, they can develop their leadership and employability skills through qualifications and our work experience programme." said Miss Sparks, the Head of Year 11.  Miss Sparks was delighted to see so many students open their exam results with smiles and excitement.

Well done to all Sir William Ramsay Students!
