GCSE and A Level Results
Well done to our Year 11 pupils who have enjoyed great success across a broad range of subjects in their GCSEs.
Those specialising in Sciences through the Triple Science programme secured nearly 90% Grade 7-9, whilst our first cohort of students on the Creative iMedia course enjoyed similar success, with all students awarded the equivalent of a Grade 6 and two thirds achieving higher than that.
Maths continues to be a strength, with 60% of students securing Grades 6-9 in the GCSE and 80% achieving the top two grades in the A Level-standard Additional Maths qualification.
The hard work and dedication shown by these students gives them an excellent foundation as they progress to study at A Level, with a similarly broad range of subject choices being made reflecting the diversity of talents and interests in our student body
Fraser Halliwell, Head, adds “Our pupils have had to confront significant adversity due to the pandemic during their secondary education, so the excellent outcomes they have achieved in their GCSEs are a testament to their courage and perseverance. As a cohort, they have performed better than pre-Covid years with over half of grades in 6-9 range. I am delighted that our pupils have met the standards for their post-16 education, with most staying to undertake A-level study at Radnor House Sevenoaks Sixth Form.
I would like to thank our outstanding teachers for their support and diligence over the years. The passion for their subjects coupled with ambitious expectations serve our pupils well and have led to ever stronger academic outcomes. Radnor House Sevenoaks truly demonstrates what can be achieved when pupils are well known and properly supported and challenged – there is more in them than they think!”
A Levels 2023
This year's A Level results ensured that our Year 13 leavers have secured an excellent range of opportunities for their next steps. For most, this will involve progression to university, with a wide range of courses including Computer Science, Musical Theatre, Economics, Art, and many more. Over 94% of students have been admitted to their first or second choice university. The diversity of interests in this year group is highlighted also in the plans others have for joining the armed forces, undertaking apprenticeships, and commencing full-time employment.
The results themselves are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of students and staff alike. Results in Maths and the Sciences were especially strong, with 100% of these being graded A*-B.
Fraser Halliwell, Head, says: “I congratulate the Year 13 students for their wonderful achievements, and I am delighted that so many shall be starting at the university of their choice in the autumn. These outcomes can only be achieved through the highly personalised approach taken by outstanding teachers to support the students with high expectations and a genuine care for their wellbeing. I have no doubt that each and every one of our students will thrive in the next phase of their formal education and wider learning journey and I wish them well.”
A huge well done to Year 11 on a fantastic set of GCSE results today. With 87% of results graded 9 to 5 and 41% awarded the top grades of 9 to 7, our biggest ever Year 11 cohort has every reason to be delighted.
Head, Fraser Halliwell, says “Our pupils have excelled themselves with an outstanding set of GCSE results this year. Despite the much-publicised dip in grades from last year, the proportion of pupils achieving grades 9-5 has remained very similar. This is testament to the sharp focus on personalised support offered at Radnor House, as well as the courage and perseverance displayed by our pupils and staff. On behalf of the whole community, I congratulate the pupils for their achievement and look forward to seeing them next week as they start their A-level studies.”.
A Levels 2022
We are delighted to be congratulating our Year 13 pupils on a very strong set of A level and EPQ results which are testimony to the hard work and dedication shown towards their first set of formal exams.
Head, Fraser Halliwell, said “Our Sixth Form students have excelled in their performance this year, especially given the challenges of the last couple of years and their relative inexperience in public examinations. I continue to be impressed by the courage and perseverance of this cohort and know that they are well prepared for undergraduate life. I wish them all the best and look forward to celebrating future successes with them.”
This year's results show an excellent improvement on the last time exams were sat in 2019 with 44% of grades awarded being A-A*, 67% of grades A*-B and a 100% pass mark overall.
The strength of the grades achieved reflects the wide range of subjects offered at Radnor which allows pupils to choose options that best suit their talents, interests and aspirations. The broad Sixth Form experience ensures pupils are well prepared for university entry and future employment and we wish our Year 13 leavers the very best as they embark on their next steps.
The Year 11 and 13 students at Radnor House Sevenoaks have achieved the best results in the school’s history. Following a challenging two-years of GCSE and A-level study, our students have shown true courage and perseverance to secure outstanding attainment.
At GCSE, 57% of grades awarded were 9-7 (an increase of 7% on last year), with 72% of grades at 9-6, 89% at 9-5 and 100% A*-C in the Higher Project Qualification (44% A*-A). In the Sixth Form, the headline figures were 67% A*-A and 87% A*-B at A-level and 100% A*-C in the Extended Project (80% A*-A). These results are indicative of the dedication and hard work of our students and the excellent teaching and support they received in school and online over the last two years.
At A-level, Xanthe deserves a special mention for achieving A* grades in all subjects and EPQ, which see her taking a place at St Peter’s College, University of Oxford next year. Angel also achieved A* grades in all of her subjects and EPQ and will be studying at the University of Exeter. We are delighted that all our Year 13 students’ fulfilled their aspirations by gaining entry to their first choice university and course.
Fraser Halliwell, Head of Radnor House Sevenoaks, congratulated the students this morning for their achievements, “Today is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication for our students and their teachers. A lot will be said about the high grades achieved this year, but I know how successful our school has been in providing excellent education both in person and online during lockdown. Believe me – our Year 11 and 13 students have undergone an exceptionally rigorous assessment process. All have demonstrated profound knowledge and understanding of their full GCSE and A-level courses and have developed into well-rounded, confident young adults. As such, they are properly prepared for the academic and personal challenges of Sixth Form and university life next year. I wish each of them well and look forward to celebrating their future successes.”
