RASTRICK High School has enjoyed an exceptionally successful year, said headteacher Mrs Helen Lennie at the school's annual prizegiving evening.
She said excellent examination results had been achieved in August 2003. These were particularly notable this year because the results at Key Stage 4 and 5 were the best in the history of the school.
"Our over-16 students performed exceptionally well at A Level with an average pass rate of 98% and an A-C pass rate of 58%. 22 of the 26 subjects offered had a 100% pass rate.
"GCSE results Year 11 students had achieved an overall 5-plus A*-C pass rate of 58% - an outstanding 7% improvement on the previous year - which exceeded local and national averages.
"This has been an exceptionally successful year and I look forward to the future challenges which I am certain we will achieve through following our motto of `Working together for individual success'."
The awards were presented by Diane Gough of Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service.
