Romsey School’s 2022 GCSE Results
Despite a national picture of lower-than-expected grades, Romsey School students have gone against all national predictions post pandemic and achieved strong GCSE results.
The class of 2022 has excelled itself and Romsey’s students have achieved some remarkable outcomes this summer, despite all the challenges that the pandemic has thrown their way. Notwithstanding the last three years of turbulence, our students’ grades compared very favourably with previous years. An impressive 79% of the year group gained “The Basics” of English Language OR English Literature and Maths at Grade 4 or above, and 56% of the cohort gained Grade 5 or higher in the same subjects. The traditional measure of 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 or above (including English and Maths) stands at 77%.
It’s also worth noting that the school’s core vision of ‘Aspire’ and thus ‘going further than others might think is possible’ has come to the fore over the last two years; a quarter of all students gained at least five GCSEs at Grade 7 or above, with 57% of students gaining at least one GCSE at Grade 7 – quite an achievement! The data which shows how much progress our young people have made from their original starting points is also impressive and shows how hard everyone has worked to achieve these impressive results.
Mrs Eagle, Headteacher said, “We would like to congratulate all our students; it is a testament to their resilience, hard work and determination that they have defied the odds and performed so well. Our youngsters’ support team across the community also deserve recognition; congratulations and a heartfelt thank you to all parents, wider families, teachers, and support staff for your steadfast efforts throughout these difficult years.”
Mr Jonathan de Sausmarez, retiring Executive Leader of the Gateway Multi Academy Trust, stated, “These extraordinary results reflect the hard work of students and staff but also our parents and community who have collaborated with us during the pandemic to ensure our children continued to progress. Those years of dedication have paid off with some wonderful results. My congratulations to everyone involved.” As Mrs Eagle summarised, “These outcomes have ensured that our young people are leaving the school equipped for bright futures ahead and we wish them every happiness.”
